I know about Sonic Booms, but what would happen. A Light Boom, a Darkness Boom? And what would it be classified as?(sound*1=Mach, light*1=?)

No one knows, because it is impossible for us to do it

nothing. in physics, almost everything is relative. relative to light, you travel away from it at (speed of light) + 1 m/s, if you move in the opp. direction at a speed of 1m/s relative to earth

Albert Einstein theorized faster than light speed travel is impossible. so their are no "What if's...?" You can't do it. But you can make up something. Like we disappear. Google:Time dilationEinstein

You can in fact surpass the speed of light. The blue glow of a nuclear reactor comes from particles moving faster than light through water. The "light boom" is called Cherenkov radiation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherenkov_radiation

You d be moving faster than everything around you. You would just still be moving in space. Though, the molecules knocking against you would either go through you or explode.
