I have two questions.
1. What does a referee do if a team touched the robot after 5 touches(6th).
2. What does a referee do if at the start a team does not set-up there robot correctly.
Thank you,
Bob

Great questions, let's cover these individually.

The game, for that team, is effectively over. After the 5th touch you should notify the team that they have no touches left, and generally that is enough to prevent a 6th touch from the team - they will likely know this anyway, but it's always good to keep a count during the match. At the point when they use up their last touch teams know that it's their last opportunity, and the robot's "fate" is in its own hands. If they touch the robot again, the game for that team is over and you can score the table based on the state of the game elements at the instant of the touch.

The robot is not allowed to play unless they set up their robot correctly, no matter how long it takes. The team is given a minimum setup time of 1 minute, and if they do not set up their robot correctly they're not allowed to start the match until they do. The match may start before they are ready if they do not set up their robot in a "reasonable" amount of time - the team still must set up the robot correctly before they are allowed to play. If the match starts before they are ready, they may start their robot once the robot is set up correctly - however, they will only have any time remaining left on the game clock to play the match. Therefore, it is in a team's best interest to get set up quickly and correctly. If a team does not get properly set up by the time the match clock expires, the team effectively forfeits the match and receives zero points.
