He's a tusked, horned, black-eyed, black-tongued, many-toothed, shark-mouthed, exoskeletal, taloned, bladed, partially-ceramite, too-tall Tzeentch Possessed.

Magnus or Lorgar perhaps I would imagine.

Magnus would be the most likely to win a general knowledge quiz, but the Primarchs all knew a lot about different things. Lion El'Jonson knew more about tactics than the others, Perturabo knew more about demolition/offensive siege warfare than the others, Curze understood the concept of fear better than the rest of them, Lorgar was the authority on religion etc. etc.

How often did an astartes (pre-heresy) see a primarch....was it a rare occasion that a noraml astartes would lay eyes on their primarch, or was it really the higher ups of the legion that got to interact with them

did the primarchs train with their legion or separately?

Some Space Marines, obviously quite a lot - be they First Captains, Lord Commanders, retinues, bodyguards or any other attendants.

Others, very rarely. Shiban Khan in Brotherhood of the Storm, for example, recklessly abandons sensible combat doctrine whilst fighting on Chondax just to get to witness the Khagan in combat.

Remember, the Legions (with 1 or 2 exceptions) were scattered throughout various Expeditionary Fleets and only rarely mustered as a single, coherent Legion. Thus some Space Marines, Captains or Battle-Groups may well have been absent from the central command of their Legion for decades.
