Seems to be part of the puzzle, perhaps, about WHY our Galaxy rotates at the speed it does.....I've seen science documentaries that try to explain that the math isn't quite right, re: the rotational velocity of the Galaxy.
'dark matter' (good name for a rock group, dontcha think?)
Reason for theorizing its existence is to explain this anomaly. Of course, for now, 'dark matter' remains a mystery....science marches on!!!

So here is my question. Could this galaxy in fact be the home to a type 3 civilization who proceeded to cover over 99% of it with Dyson Spheres?

Are you referring to a Dyson Sphere that encases the entire sun? Your language is somewhat ambiguous.
My feelings are that advanced civilizations wouldn't need a Dyson Sphere. They've probably gone way beyond the need for solar energy.
I'm sorry but nothing you have said is proof of anything other than fertile imaginations.
