First, I would suggest you to read the learning manual. Not with the goal of 
actually typesetting anything, just to actually understand how lilypond works. 
Second, I would suggest you use a more easily accessible tool for typesetting 
your scores than vim. Some are mentioned on the tutorial page of the website under easier editing.

i realize that I haven't answered your questions, but your questions may change 
once you've invested the bit of time it takes to actually read (rather than 
search or skim) the learning manual.
