Default Humming toriodal transformer....?

Is it "normal" for a toriodal to hum when turned on and drawing high current? Any methods of preventing this humming to couple onto the output?

you probably need a dc trap on the mains side (primary) the humming is from dc in your mains supply

two anti paralell diodes paralell to a big electrolytic capacitor, and in series with the live wire just before the toriodal should solve it.

Can you post a ms-paint schematic? IM not sure what you mean by anti-parallel diodes. Do you mean back to anode to cathode and cathode-to-annode?
