Please dont confuse power = Watts,
With current = Amps.
Or even volts !
All are different beasts,
And if you want to understand electricity it is vital
that you understand these basic concepts.
Current is only one half of power !
You are mixing these things up
that is why you do not yet understand.
First question - Current is same in hot line as in neutral line.
Or at least should be.
However power in Watts, will change, cause volts will change.
But current will not change.
cause watts = volts x amps,
if one of these two items change,
then the final outcome, in watts will change.
If you cannot get your head around these things
then I think you need to study some more.
But keep asking, cause thats how you learn !
