I think most of your questions have been answered, but I'll just offer
a couple more suggestions for getting started: -- first place to start, there's a lot of good info here
xbindkeys -- great utility for general purpose keyboard shortcuts
xfontsel -- a utility to get the proper syntax needed for choosing
different fonts (I highly recommend the terminus and dina fonts)
xinitrc -- perfect for loading dwm and any other apps you wanted
started automatically

Google those terms and you'll be up and running in no time.
