Was it just a bunch of smaller black holes combined over time to create a super one. Stars in the center of the galaxy are much more dense so would there be a greater chance for blackholes to swallow each other up there?
Wrong, matter falling to blackhole gets hot because in inner accretion disc pressure and temperature are extremely high, it's just that when matter is compressed temperature rises.

mwen, maby when an object passes through a black hole, it reaches such a high temperture and then is spewed out of a white hole (thus a star)

a super massive black hole is basically still a theory...
They don't say anything about stuff travelling faster than light.

It seems that matter can be accelerated faster than light...
