1.) I don't know which of the two to use.
ie) what's your reason for doing that VS what are your reasons for doing that?
when can you expect to have one reason as opposed to many reasons?
2.) I am in great pain VS I have a pain in my stomach?
can I say I have PAIN in my stomach?
3.) war/a war/wars
when do I use "in war" and when "in a war"

I think for the first you can simply say:
Why do you do that? Either for one reason or many reasons.
For the second you can say:
I have a stomach ache
my stomach is aching
