To tell you the truth, most of these questions aren't very hard at all. You can find most of your answers seaching through this topics or keywords in this forum and on google. Try doing a little research first, you would learn a great amount from research rather than from people answering your questions. For questions that you find too difficult to answer, then ask again and we would be gladly to help you.
