OK, how about this for starters:


This is an introductory html text that can act as a teacher for you. 
(There are some other resources at that address, too.)  It is the text 
that I used in an introductory programming class that I taught. As you 
go through this you sill start to learn the answers to your questions.

As to your desire to write programs you can use outside the 
shell...well that will come after you have an idea of what you would 
like to do and learn how to "say it" with a language.  But at this 
point I think your main task will be to learn how to "say things" in 
general.  Python is a nice language to work with in this regard.
