Mixing carbs and fat
When you mix carbs and fat what amount of fat can you use in order for it not to even count? 1,2,5 g?

Not sure, but wouldn't that partially depend on the GI value of the carbs?

pwo..1 gram max
ppwo.....2-3 grams max
pro/carb meal with a low gi carb like oatmeal...5-6 grams max
pro/fat.....2-3 grams of carbs coming from vegetable fiber not from sugar or high gi carb..like some condiments

I think if you are purely going for a Pro/Carb meal 5g or less would be ok. It's impossible to cut out all fat. Just try and do anything you can to cut out the fat. And yes GI value would most certainly play a part as fat can increase the Glycemic Load of certain carbs, most higher GI carbs.

Its almost impossible to find any food with lower than 5g of fat. I mean I eat chicken and that still has 3g of fat per 4oz and I eat two of them to get the protein I need. Even the lower GI carbs sometimes have like 1 or 2g of fat. So put them together and your getting anywhere from 6-8g of fat in that meal.

Scottish Oats (oatmeal) have 8g of fat per 100g
and 60g carbs
i eat 150g of it in the morning
am i eating the wrong oats?

tuna one can contains 1g of fat so it doesnt get much leaner then that.
But I wouldnt worry to much. If the carbs are low gi I think even 10 grams of fat wont do any difference. Count it into the kcal ammount of the day but dont obsesse about separating fat and carbs when it comes to small ammounts.
Most pwo shakes has around 3-5grams of fat in them since most of us use whey concentrate not isolate. Fat is everywhere.
