Help with getting some Mac software please

First time poster here & a brand new Mac (MacBook) user (I have 20+ years PC experience & many quals for PC but am still learning to fully use the Mac).
I guess the nature of this thread is to ask advice about getting some Mac equivalent programs that we used on Windows PCs.
Specifically at this point anyway:
"MS Paint" equivalent - my daughter wants a program that allows her to 'copy & paste' artwork, photos, screen-captures, etc into it & use her graphics tablet in it
"Nero Express" equivalent - something easy to burn data, audio & video to CDs & DVDs
"ColorPix equivalent" - a free 'colour picker' that shows the hex values of any pixel (with RGB & CMYK would be nice)
"Audiograbber" equivalent (by Jackie Franks) - would this be "Handbrake"?
"Easy Thumbnails" equivalent - a bulk "thumbnail" creator
"Canasta" - card game
I am sure that there will be more that we will discover but the above is a starting place for us.
Freeware would be nice
But above all I am after personal recommendations of what has been "tried & tested" by members.
While "Google is my friend" I could spend hours sorting through junk & I don't want to be installing & un-installing useless programs.
Cheers & thanks in advance for you help & recommendations.
