Network find commands?

what comand do I use to find usefull comands, common comands? or, where on www?
if noone knows, then what comand do I use to run a (bin)file?

ls /bin
ls /usr/bin
ls /usr/sbin

or "echo $PATH" and whatever is returned, list the contents of those directories. when you find a command, read the man page on it by typing "man <command_in_question>" i.e., man cd for the man page on the cd command.

hope this helps.
