Well, these questions also come to my head and go. All i can say is that there are lots of questions that are beyond our brain. I read it somewhere that human brains are very small to understand this universe and of couse the God Himself! So dont try to think that we cant cope with. But on the other hand, there are few epics and saints and mayb who reads epics that might explain all these answers.
But the answer to arms question might be that God carrys different things in each hand to teach us, to protect us, to fight the evil, to bless us, etc. dunno if im right here or not.
Lord Vishnu takes avatar coz he is the preserver hence He has to protect and fight the evil and free us from evilness. there is a verse in Chapter 4 in Geeta in which Lord Krishna says that :
"Yadaa Yadaahi Dharmasya Glaanirbhavati Bhaarata
Abhyutthaanam Adharmasya Tadaatmanam Srujaamy Aham"
that means: "Whenever there is a decline in righeousness, O descendant of Bharata, and whenever there is much more unrighteousness, I manifest Myself personally at that time. In order to protect the good at heart and destroy evil and wrongdoers, I show Myself, millennium after millennium." and hence Lord Vishnu takes avtars in order to protect us and the Mother Earth!
Dont know much about Lord Shiva's avatars apart from Hanumanji.
Lord Vishnu being blue-skinned...hmmmm...sorry cant remember! any1 there who knows?
now, i also have a question:
Q4: Why do Hindus have so many Gods?I know most of them are incarnations but still we worship them.
Hope this will help!

I googled 'em. Hope that answers your question!!
Q1. Why is lord vishnu colored blue?One of the theories is that Vishnu, because of his association with water, is depicted blue; therefore all his incarnations including Krishna, are shown as such. In Hinduism, persons who have depth of character and the capacity to fight evil are depicted as blue skinned. ...
Q2. Why do hindu gods have so many arms?Deities are often portrayed with multiple arms, especially when they are battling cosmic forces. The multiplicity of arms emphasizes the deity's immense power and ability to perform several acts at the same time. The portrayal of a deity in human form but with multiple arms is the artist's attempt to express the deity's superhuman power. Demons are frequently depicted with multiple heads to convey their superhuman power as well.
Occasionally a deity is shown with more than one head in an attempt to describe various aspects of the character of that deity. For example, when the god Shiva is portrayed with a triple head, the central face indicates his essential character and the flanking faces depict his fierce and blissful natures.
Q3. Why only Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva take avtaars and not Brahma?Shiva:
