You actually asked a few different questions there, so I'll answer the last one. You can do any number of courses, some run by Apple about the technical aspects, and view a few online tutorials here and YouTube etc, but the real answer is that editing takes a long time to master. I means years. Ive been editing over 6 years now and many creative cow FCP answering people know about 2billion times more than me- not just the technical stuff which you can read in a manual, but the timing, and "art" of using creative initiative. It takes passion and time! As for your other questions, you may need to be a little more specific, although you could try searching for keyframing pictures or something....
