I'm watching Star Wars: "Empire Strikes Back" and in the intro roll it says the Vader is vehemently searching for Skywalker. Why? Is this every explain in the movie or by Lucas?

Surely it's because Luke blew up the Death Star in episode IV? Vader now has to spend a lot of money, or even get a loan to pay for a new one?

He feels a disturbance in the force. He could be a powerful ally.

Luke is the only other Jedi competition against Vader, he is a threat to the empire and needs to be destroyed. It's to do with the prophecy in episode I as well, they sorta' get it wrong and think Anakin will bring peace to the galaxy but instead it's Luke.

Halfway through the film Darth Vader wants to turn Luke to the darkside though, he feels a little bit of compassion for his son.

Nope. The prophecy was correct. Vader kills the emperor in the end.

But how did Vader know that Luke destroyed the death star? or is he simply searching for "someone strong in the force" and doesnt know who it is?

Because Luke was like the last X-Wing fighter left and he shot off Darth Vader, then he blew it up and Vader saw

Did you know that the entire plot of Star Trek 2 is set in motion because a bad guy from one of the original episodes recognizes a crew member even though that actor had not yet signed on to the show when the episode was made?

It's called a continuity error. Deal with it.

We've explained it. Darth Vader felt a disturbance in the force, something strange about luke. He knew the force was strong with him. He talked to the Emperor, and he said he needs to either kill him or make him their ally. So, out of the good that remains in Anakin Skywalkers heart, he doesn't kill Luke. Instead he offers him a chance to turn to the dark side.

End of story.

or maybe he was looking to tell Luke that he was Leia's brother before they kissed unbeknown to him.

Vader or more likely the emperor felt a disturbance in the force, Vader recalled the high level of force he felt with that pilot that blew up the death star, and set out to find this disturbance hoping to find the death star destroyer as well as the final jedi and in effect kill two birds with one stone

Guys you misunderstand "chosen one". The Chosen One was supposed to bring balance to the force. Considering the Sith is only a master/apprentice style, whereas the Jedi Order has hundreds of Jedi, the force was technically balanced to the light side. If the force acts as a balance, where good balances evil, there should only really be two Jedi at a time. And in the end of the films, we only know ofr 4 jedi, two of which are Sith, and two are Jedi. Therefore he balanced the force by becoming evil.

Also it was on the Emporers orders that he find Luke. But he also had his own devices in which he wants Luke to come to the darkside and help him overthrow the Emporer.

I'm pretty sure Vader's "chosen one" prophesy refers to him killing the emperor and restoring order and balance.
