If you read the man pages a little better the information you are looking for is in there. With that said I'll throw you one here.
ftp <address of server you want to connect to> [enter]
That will connect you to the ftp server and then you use the different ftp commands from there.
dir, put, get, mput, mget, and many more.
<web page address here> [enter]
that will start lynx and go to the web page you specified. read the man page for lynx for more info on how to use it and navigate pages.
