The difference in Frodo's age at the time of Bilbo's birthday party and the time they are together in Rivendel is because Frodo didn't leave the Shire until a good 17 YEARS after Bilbo's birthday party. He was 33 then, but 50 when he set out. Read the FOTR again and this is pretty clear. Gandalf wasn't imprisoned by Saruman for even 1 year, let alone 30.

Goblin is just another word for Orc.

"Orcrist" = "Goblin-Cleaver"
Orc = Goblin
