Yes, you can use robot expansion with any expansion, promo, all power grid stuff to date.

My impression (I don't own the robots expansion yet) is that the robots are essentially just making rules on how a person would play: e.g. "This robot will always buy as many resources as it can afford."

The robot is creating a programmed additional player, and (I believe) has no effect on how you would otherwise set up the map and resource supply.

The robots work with any map. It might be a real pain to use robots with the Korea map's split fuel market. The robots are unprepared to deal with any of the cards in Power Grid: BGG Promo Card Set, but the humans can still bid on them.

What about the Japan map where you can start 2 unconnected networks at the start? I guess you can use a dice roll to determine on whether or not the Robot builds a 2nd network.
