Having a degree means that you might be able to read a tutorial ;-)?
In earnest, I can only recommend it very much, please take the little
time to study the interactive Emacs tutorial (C-h t or have a look at
the help menu) it's definitely worth while.

Loading a file in Emacs parlance means loading the stuff from the file
into the lisp interpreter.  When you want to edit a file do C-x C-f
(find-file).
