Ok, please bear with me as I have not read any of the novels or played video games that connected certain plots between 2 and 3..... so my question is, why was Palpatine even held hostage by Dooku if they were both on the same "side"?? Was it just a ploy to lure the Jedi onboard? Or was there something else to his capture/being held hostage???

It was just a ploy.

Funny thing is though, Grievous didn't know Palps was Sids, so he kept arguing with Palpatine and muttering things like "If only Master Sidious would let me kill you."

My thought was it was a trick to jure the Jedi onboard.

To lure the jedi and see Anakin's skills vs Dooku.

This one up here is from the clone wars series when Grievous kidnaps him. However, i'm almost sure he also said it in the novel.
