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
lilypond.org 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.
