1) Add the following code to the permeable of your document:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\makeatletter
\catcode"00AB=\active%left double quote
\catcode"00BB=\active%right double quote
\def«{\if at rl\char"00BB\else\char"00AB\fi{}}
\def»{\if at rl\char"00AB\else\char"00BB\fi{}}
\makeatother
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

2) You are mot probably using latest version of bidi but that is not a
problem put this code again at permeable of your document:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\makeatletter
\def\author#1{\gdef\@author{\beginR #1 \endR}}
\makeatother
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

3) I am afraid, I can not help you unless you send your TeX document and its
output.

Note: From my perspective, Arabxetex is intended for people who can not
write in the language, but if you can, then  polyglossia or xepersian would
be a better choice.
