Click on the object path with the Direct Selection Tool (A) to activate the points.
Use the Path Selection Tool to move the whole object.

When a curved point is selected with the Direct Select Tool (A), you can grab the end of the handlebar to adjust the curve.
You can also adjust a curved path by clicking on it, between two points.

In the Pen Tools, you'll find the Convert Anchor Point Tool. Click on a curve point to make it into a corner.
Click and Drag on a corner point to make it into a curve.
You can also use this tool to adjust the corner angle of a point by using it to grab a point's handlebar.
By pressing Alt you can quickly switch this into the Direct Selection Tool
