It's the wording in the rulebook that is just so tortured.
  • ITL 102: "that figure has not yet acted"
  • ITL 36: "at the start of your action phase"
And can you roll twice to quick draw two daggers?

A strict interpretation of RAW would say no, since the second dagger is not a shield, though that seems a little unreasonable.

Depends if you are engaged. The option to ready a weapon when unengaged (ITL 102 (e)) lets you read ready and change around multiple weapons. The option when engaged (ITL 103 (m)) only lets you ready a single weapon. So, in the context of Quick Draw the answer I would expect you to be engage and the answer is "no".

Can you quick draw javelins for your spear thrower?

That be Thrown Weapons skill and not Quick Draw.

I would say that is a GM's call if Thrown Weapons can/cannot work when it is not merely throwing but also "loading" a spear thrower.

So it's also Thrown Weapons that enhances Lasso?
