If humans really did evolve from human apes then why are there no human apes alive today ( or well atleast no known) ?

I'm sorry, but this question makes no sense. Pre-human ancestors either were adapted to their environment and survived or they didn't.

How come the chimpanzees and the orangutangs and the gorillas survived untill this day practically staying the same shape ( I havent got any information about the monkeys evolution in the past) While more advanced forms of semi humans died out ore evolved ?

Because chimps and other apes were adapted to their environments. Again, from my point of view this question makes no sense.

There is only 1 species of humans today. I can get kids with anyone of the races i would like but there is really only one known. I think it doesen't make sence at all.

You're right, your question doesn't make any sense. If, say, neanderthals survived to this day they still wouldn't be considered human. Anything different than human ain't human.

This is like asking why my neighbor John isn't my family? Well, becuz he ain't my family. If he's my family than he's my family, but he ain't.

How would the primitive apes have survied along side with the most advanced form of humans. While all the semi humans died out ?

Because they occupied different niches than us.
