If you're relatively new to Emacs <i>AND</i> Lisp, I would suggest reading through any Emacs and Emacs Lisp manuals. I'm learning Lisp, and from what I understand, Emacs Lisp is just a pared down implementation of Lisp or Common Lisp.
I apologize, because I haven't yet learned how to work with key-bindings in Common Lisp, so I'm no help to you there, but here are some links that may provide: http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs-lisp-intro/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emacs_Lisp
As indienick says emacs lisp is just common-lisp with a lot of function added for emacs (buffer, text processing etc etc).
You can define a keymap like this:
;;Here we define Ctrl-C-C as a shortcut for the compile command
(define-key global-map "\C-cc" 'compile)
Since this is just lisp I guess you can start from this and define the keymap you need, for example if you want to remap Ctrl-Z key to print hello world into the current buffer, I think this should do the job:
