    If I get a 1KHz clock input, How can I double the frequency or half it by using logic gates but not actually electronic compoments?

    I don't think you can double it, but 1/2 is very commong. The arrangement is called a clock divider and there are single chips which can do it for you. Multiple divisions from 1/2 on down, 1/4, 1/8, 1/2^n basically.

    The logic gates are just forming flip flops and the flip-flips divide down the signal. Just throw clock divider and flip flop into google.
