Short answer: Welcome, good choice.  Python is a great language,
perhaps the best.   There are several guis available, perhaps too
many.  Games, database, business apps, small and large are doable.
(Don't know what dreamweaver is.)

Longer answer: All of these topics have been discussed at length in
previous threads.  You can find some by going to
and entering 'Python' and another search term or two.  You can also go
to www.python.org and follow links there, including to Python wiki.
Or go to google web search page.  'Python game programming' gives
pygame.org as first response (as it should).
