To clarify some things:
Starfleet (also referred to as the Federation Starfleet after 2161) was the military and deep-space exploratory service maintained by the United Federation of Planets.

If one wants an in-universe explanation for the seemingly dominance of humans in Starfleet, Earth's Starfleet transition into UFP'S Starfleet implied that it's HQ remained on Earth, that many procedures remained as they were before, that a lot of humans applied to the Academy and that other UFP members kept there initial exploration/military agency like the Vulcans seemed to do (which TNG episode was that?).
