I am planning on scratch building 2 flets, Galactic Empire and Clone War Republic to use in BFG and I have 2 questions:
1. What fleets would best represent each faction? I was thinking Space Marines for Galactic Empire and Imperial Navy for Clones.
2. What type of SW Clone Ships would be best to use? Maybe the Acclamator Class or Victory Class Star destroyer?

I'm not too hot on the classes of the clone troopers, but the Galactic Empire I can help you with.
For the Galactic Empire you could use Necrons:
Cairn Tombship - Executor Class Super Star Destroyer
Harvest Ship - Imperial Class Star Destroyer
Shroud - Interdictor Class Cruiser
Jackal - Dreadnaught Class Cruiser
Dirge - Carrack Class Light Cruiser
OK, so maybe not a perfect match, but the start of an idea.
The Space Marine Fleet could also work in this role:
BattleBarge - Executor Class Super Star Destroyer
Strike Cruiser - Imperial Class Star Destroyer
Nova - Interdictor
etc, etc, etc...
I suppose the Chaos fleet could be used as well:
Planet Killer - Eclipse Class Super Star Destroyer (with super-killy anti-planet laser!)
Repulsive Class Grand Cruiser - Imperial Class Super Star Destroyer
And so forth...
I am sure I have seen rules for the use of Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance fleets in BFG before (house rules obviously), but I have no idea where. You could google them and see...
Hope this helps buddy. Best of luck with the idea.
port maw has trial star wars rules, although no ideas for models if i remember correctly
Space Marines are the gateway drug
If everyone makes fun of West Virginia, who does West Virginia make fun of?
Yeah port maw has a copy of some rules but if i remember rightly they're way too overpowered and out sized. If i were you I'd make some rules from scratch using whatever fluff you know from the starwars universe. (i wish for a lucas-pedia for this task but still no luck ) I wish you luck in sorting the rules as for me i enjoyed making my models from scratch using stuff from my bits box (Mashed up movement trays and ship bits for star destroyers and things which look a bit like tau for the rebbelion) I've never thought about making a clone fleet but i see no reason why it couln't be done. I just dont know enough about the different classes of clone ship in comparrison to the galactic civil war era.
laser cannon, Heavy laser cannon, dual laser cannon, quad laser cannon, Laser batteries etcetc AND the same for turolasers AND there is controvesy on the warheads for example in eps 123 proton torps are class against fighters but in 456 they are only good against cap ships... ? its too Confusing
ooh forgot to mention theres also another guy tryingto get rules sorted (kinda ish ...) its in the thread star wars IN BFG and its got soe rules for an imp fleet you might wnt to check it out, oh and i cant find the rules on port maw anymore they might have been deleted

True, I did make some rules. The ones on here are only the first go at it. I advanced them much further on tau-online and have a large selections of ships that make the size requirement.
Something like 5 escorts, 1 cruiser, 1 grandcruiser, and something like 5 battleship sized craft.
It actually works out very well and the planetary defense weapons also work out well. I am still working on it though.
"When a necron gets hit with a weapon more than double its toughness it is hit so hard that it goes into "negative damage" and does less damage than it actually would if it hit him with less force!" Quote from azimaith on Warseer, contemplating how much GW will Nerf the WBB rules.
