1. look for advanced bash scripting guide and other more basic resources on, i also suggest you the linux hands on guide from
2. if you have even a windows machine you can install virtualbox and deploy your linux/unix virtual machines for education/training
3.,4. bash is one of the many shells generally available on unix/linux; ssh is a protocol/application for securely and remotely logging into a system; a shell script is a batch of instructions that can be executed non-interactively - more on the resources suggested in 1.
5,6,7,8,9,10... start reading the suggested resources and practice your scripting skills =)
