There's no one right way to learn Emacs.  But, I think the way you're 
choosing is a lot of work. 

You can start off using it for everyday editing, that's what I did and 
what lots of people do.  I expect you've done the tutorial and learned 
the keybindings, that's very useful.  Then read a bit of the manual 
and the internet resources occasionally and learn more. 

You only really need to looks for customizations, enable non-default 
packages, etc. when you run into a problem or you feel something is 
inefficient.  Why change the standard behaviour if it's not a problem? 


In the interest of keeping this thread focused on the implementation-specific 
issues rather than the diversions likely from my answer, I've started a new 
thread for the "pig picture" issues here:!topic/
