You can read about most modules by clicking (or highlighting) the HELP file associated with it? Is that what you mean?

You can also look into the source tree:
less /usr/src/linux/Documentation

Cool

Yes, those are usually listed in the help files in the kernel config, you just do as I listed above and it will usually list the dependencies that are required for that module, or even better sometimes a website is listed.

Cool
