Why does 'multe' sometimes come after the verb, and sometimes before?

Because Esperanto word order is flexible. The most usual word order is for adverbs like "multe" to be before the verb though. As you become more familiar with Esperanto, you can change the word order for emphasis.

By the way, if you click the translation it states "tri, amason, amaso" as the translations. Shouldn't it just say "multe, amason"?

Dormas. Why can it not be "Mi dormi multe"? Why does it have to be "Mi dormas multe" if dormi is also offered as an option?

Dormi is the infinitive and dormas is conjugated.

Is there a difference between 'mi dormas multe' and 'mi multe dormas' ? I saw someone saying that Esperanto can be flexible, but does this mean that saying 'mi dormas multe' is wrong compared to 'mi multe dormas' or are both equally accepted?

Both are equally accepted, the word order between nouns and adjectives does not matter. The adjective can come before the noun or after, it does not make a difference. I think there is some more information in the Tips & Notes Section in Basics 1 or Basics 2.

Why does it give you the translations after you've already learned that word and done it a couple of times? I mean, it's handy, but you can only learn so much this way.
