If I want to make gallon batches, the yeast that you buy. Is that set up for 5 gallon batches? So do I need to sepperate that into 5th's?

a packet of yeast is usually for 5 gallon batches, and you can use a half or a third if you like. You can also use the whole thing, it's not a big deal either way.

Do the same with the nutrient and energizer?

Check out the sticky for info on proper nutrient and energizer additions. And 1 package of yeast is generally good for 1-6 gallons, so use the whole thing. It less then a buck and it gives the yeast a jump start on reproduction.
