Ok, I could be completely wrong about this, but here goes

I read earlier that our whole solar system is rotating around our galaxy at like 250000000 miles per hour, so, if we were able to travel at the speed of light, you we were traveling at the speed of light, we would get a lot farther in the same time if we went against this spin instead of with it...

Does this mean that if a sun was traveling behind a planet and both were rotating, would the time it takes the light from the sun to get to the planet be longer than if the planet was behind the sun?

if you understand my ramblings, please respond.
