Re: New user information on how it works compared to windows xp
They usually go into the Applications Dash (the Ubuntu button, then press the little bookshelf icon at the bottom of the Dash). Gnome Tweak Tool is actually called "Advanced Settings" so you can search for that in the Dash. Or if you start typing "gnome tweak" into the Dash it will appear.

Do installed files go into a "program files" place like they do in xp?
Can you please rephrase this question, I don't know what you're asking.
How can I find files from my same computer but different hard dis find wheret were in word and put them in the ubuntu office program and the same question for pdf files?
Open up the home folder and click on the top item in the sidebar on the left (on mine, it's labelled "101GB Filesystem"). Explore.
Is there a way to find out how your files are set up on the computer like you would in a tree in windows?
This is 2013, there are no terminal commands needed for ordinary operation of your computer. There's not really a list of what's available, except if you look in /bin, /sbin and /usr/bin folders.
Is there a list of common terminal emulator commands that are needed to operate the machine?
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
