Is the Lower Aircraft being flown solo or just that the Aft seat occupant is not visable in this pic.

The Hawk 100's were primarily designed as trainers and are all two seaters irrespective of what they are used for. The hawk 200's were designed for attack and these are available in a single seater model.

They are often flown solo, the RAF Red Arrows display team fly solo, very demanding flying as well.

During the Cold War, from 1980 onwards, 100 RAF Hawk T.1s were wired for AIM-9L Sidewinders, the idea was that in a major conflict, when by then could involve large scale Soviet conventional air attacks against the UK, the Hawk T.1A as the modded aircraft were designated, would supplement RAF fighters and SAMs, acting via fighter aircraft radar vectors to tackle any 'leakers'.
Leaving more fighters like F-4's and Tornado F.3s for standing CAP's at longer ranges.

A SU-24 at low level with a heavy bomb load would not relish an AIM-9L and 30mm cannon (mounted in a centerline pod) armed small, agile Hawk coming at them with a highly trained pilot.
These Hawk T.1A's would have also acted as area defence for airfields and other key static targets, even the Red Arrow's Hawks were wired for this role, which was discontinued once the Cold War was over.

Why only trainers,Would it not make sense to add a few Fighters to the List.

I dont think it is too hard to convert the 100 into a light comabt aircraft , like GDB has mentioned it is capable of being armed.
