Is there any explanation for the void nights?

How can the moons just vanish for two years? Aren't they the corpse of Lorkhan?

Eugenics experiment. With a side dish of "don't [censored] with us."

Very powerful Mythic Era level magic or artifacts. Hints have been dropped that the Thalmor were somehow responsible. At the very least they were able to accurately predict when the moons would reappear.

Sort of vague, but I'm guessing the Thalmor were trying to figure out a way of wiping out man in one go?

Eugenics related to the Khajiit. Possibly trying to restore them to their previously Aldmeri state, and/or mess with the Lunar Lattice

Ok, that makes sense. What happened to Khajiit born during those times? Doesn't the moons' phases dictate what form they take? Was it like they were all born under two new moons?

That's what I would guess, but we don't know for sure.

Hard to say. Even when the moons are new they're still there and have an effect on the Khajiit.
