1) cmd + backspace is the shortcut for delete.
2) your local drive is in finder, called "Macintosh HD"
3) yes it will stop downloading.
4) activity monitor (in utilities folder) and by selecting the hard drive "macintosh HD", then hitting cmd + i
5) right click/control click on desktop - new folder....
6) in system preferences - mouse - you need to turn it on
7) move it to full screen and it will remember it for next time
8) its part of mobile me, a wireless subscription service
9) a program called Expod or Detune
10) have you turned airport on?
11) VLC, Flash player, etc
A Switchers guide to recommended free Apps to download to your new Mac
12) drag it off
13) its a backup utility, for use with an external drive.
14) yes, through disk utility, but there is really no need, unless you want to install windows, in which case you use Bootcamp
15) not necassarily, but it is tidier, and more organised.
16) in iPhoto, select Export...

hope this helps.

alot of your questions can be explained fuller if you have a browse around the forum, there is a lot of great info on here.

nope, they are programmed for different operating systems. (also they are completely different file types, one is an executable, while the other (dmg) is a disk image.) to use .exe files you need to either install windows, or buy a program like crossover (which doesnt always work.)
