It's all doable in a few days/weeks depending on what you already understand
Just google for easy howtos and don't mind asking what you don't understand.
It also helps if you mention the distro you're using in your profile.
Shared libs are just system libs used by all your default distro apps (static ones usually come with commercial binaries or when the the default ones wont work).
X (XORG or XFree86) is a both a client and a server that provides you a default platform for a graphical desktop.
Building a new kernel is extremely easy if you follow a guide for your specific distro.
