I'm a siren and I'm dying a lot on my second run. Can anyone give me tips so that the game isn't as hard?

Find a way to easily farm dukino's mom on playthrough one and get good level 30ish purple weapons. that helps. otherwise, try to be a good 4 levels above the quest levels and you'll be fine.

Using appropriate elemental weapons is a good plan.

Also you do double damage to slagged enemies, so slagging an enemy and swapping to another weapon can be an effective strategy for bringing the pain.

Yes, while you're on the continue screen press Y then select your character. You can then switch been normal and tvhm whenever you want.

Yup. It's done the same way you select between your characters. Just pick Siren and it'll ask if you want Normal mode or True Vault Hunter.

And I don't know what build you're using, but I'd suggest you go with Cataclysm. True Vault Hunter mode favors elemental damage and with Ruin you'll turn Phase Lock into an aoe that does damage with all elements as well as slagging them for double damage.

Aside from that... grab yourself a Tediore SMG or a rocket launcher and get read for some last stands. The second play through does not kid around.

If I go back to my first playthrough, can I go back to my second one and start where I left off?

Yes you can, also why us someone telling him to farm Dukino's mom? Warrior drops far more gear and they'll all be closer to the beginning tvhm gear levels.
Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

My tips:

- always have a rocket launcher in your slots as it's the easiest way to get a Second Wind
- always have a shock weapon as enemies resist elemental weapons a lot more with a shield active
- update weapons more frequently as you'll need to keep them at or above the level of the enemies more often

1. Cataclysm branch. Last skill adds slag to faseshift. x2 damage
2. Class mod with +80% damage for smg. Nearly x2 damage on top of it
3. Have elemental smgs and use them accordingly.
