hi, this might be a dumb question but, on the Artix7 XC7A200T-2FFG1156, it says there are 16 GTP transceivers. does that mean that I can have 16 transmitters and 16 receivers, or it is a total of 16 transmitters and receivers (like 8 transmitters and 8 receivers)?

One transeiver includes one transmitter and one receiver. So you got 16 each, though they are not absolutely independant from each other.
Refer to UG482 for more details.

yes you can use all the 16 GTP transceivers at a time , you need use 16 SFP connectors or one FMC connector .
Can a transceiver transmit and receive at the same time?
yes it can send data and receiver at time it all depends on the configuration of the IP , for example aurora has deluxe mode ...
