You seem like a very knowledgeable person so my question is, will a 12 V 7amp battery charge faster is it is connected to a solar panel outputting more that 12V 7amp? If the battery is connected to a 12V 7amp charge controller, would the max input be 12V 7amp???

Could you rephrase that into the form of a bagel? But in all seriousness, is it a 12v 7A or 7AH battery? The diffrence is the amount of electrons that the battery will hold vs. the maximum amount of draw... Also, is it a lead acid battery that we are talking about or a nickle/lithium technology?
its a 12V 7AH and its a lead acid battery

well, ofcourse it would charge faster the more amps you put to it... But the problem becomes heat. Yes, its not a big deal to charge a car battery with 10 amps, but a smaller battery like that might make it "boil" more... I would recomend something below 7 amps to charge it. Most LA batterys really like a 2 amp trickle charge.
but if a charge controller is rated 12V 7A, the max input to the battery is 12V 7A. Right?

not neccesairly, the charge controler can only HANDLE that much, it could possibly exceed that but it would fry. Depends on the controler. Buy a multimeter and test it. they are like 4 bucks at harborfreight...
