We r flying into terminal f and have 40 min to make a connecting flight I believe in gate a or b. Looks like the shuttle is the best way however I'm worried if it's every 15 min that we may miss our connection! Is there any way we can make it?

It runs more frequently than that, but yes, it is a difficult connection.
I'm arriving from YYZ on an American Eagle flight (Terminal F, I think). I then have a 1h 20m layover until my flight to LAX on American Airlines (not sure about the terminal). Both are booked on one reservation through Qantas (heading to Australia out of LAX eventually).
Is that enough time? Do I have to go through security or anything again?

That is enough time. You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Philadelphia is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
We arrive at Term B and have a little over an hour before our flight to London departs from Term A. What is the fastest way to get from B to A (I believe it's Term A-West for international flights?) And, do I need to go through security at Term A? will I have enough time?
You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You don't have to go through security, you have enough time.
We are flying in to Philly from Manchester UK arriving at terminal A. The connecting flight to louisville is from terminal F. What is the process for the connection? Do we have to go through immigration, collect baggage and then check in for new flight? Do we walk or is there a connecting bus to the other terminal, we have a member who has walking difficulties and are now worried that the 1h 40mins is not enough time.
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and take the shuttle bus to Terminal F. You should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
