Your first sentence suggests that you already know the basics of 
programming, so perhaps you meant something a bit different?  such as not 
figure out for yourself the basic idioms of Python, but learn them from 
code?

In any case, item 1 seems too broad for specific help.  As to item three, 
there are modules and indeed programs available.  Check PyPI on the Python 
site, or search this newsgroup's archives (groups.google.com) or the web 
generally.
