Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Check engine light has been on for a few months, and flashing whenever i accelerate between 20-45 MPH. now whenever i start it, the engine shakes and shutters for 5-10 seconds before either idleing normal...

Why is the check light on for months?
As soon as you get a light on, you have the possibility of a stored code, and a place to start your diagnostic testing, immediately.
After 30 years of electronic systems, installed on vehicles, I don't see why people don't understand how their vehicles function.
Take it to a repair shop, as soon as the light comes on. Then you find out what may be the issues, where as waiting, could possibly cause further problems or damage.

I have a scooter a bms teamguys 150cc scooter it is impossible to start in the morning or after its been sitting for a few hours you have to use starter fluid to get it going but once its warmed up it runs...

Could just be cold blooded. Does sound like fuel is being primed to be able to start. if a person has to use starter fluid, then that means the carb is not getting enough gas at start up. Carb will most likely need to be pulled apart and soaked in solvent or equivelant for couple hours. Make sure float is adjusted properly and fuel filter is clean
