I'm not sure of your photoshop experience, but it sounds like you need the full monte when it comes to a tutorial. None of these are specific to your project, but you will learn what you need to know.

Adobe, of course: http://www.adobe.com/products/tips/photoshop.html

But here are some others:
http://www.good-tutorials.com/
http://www.planetphotoshop.com/tutorials.html
http://www.learnphotoshopfast.com/cgi-bin/photshop-tutorials.htm
http://www.tutorialhome.com/
http://www.absolutecross.com/tutorials/photoshop/
http://www.photoshopcafe.com/

If they don't teach you what you need to know, you can ask some more specific questions, but the best thing you can ever do is learn how to do it yourself! Don't worry though, there about 50,000 people here more qualified than I am that will be more than willing to help you if you run into a wall, although I will do my best too.

A couple of different ways to do it, this one is assuming you have gone through some tutorials and learned about using layers. You have, haven't you? ;-)

 I create a new layer, (hide the others) fill it with white, and would type out the words. Next, use the magic wand to select the background (white), making sure to get inside any 'o', 'p', etc. letters (either use shift-click when using the magic wand or turn off 'contiguous'). Once you have your selection, create a new layer (don't fill it with white), and hide the other one. Select inverse and you should have your type as a selection. (there are other ways to do it, this one is pretty simple). Now, make sure the Paths pallette is showing, and 'Make Work Path' from your selection. Then, choose the color you want in the mixer tool, and Stroke Path. You can experiment with the brush or pencil and widths of the tools to get the thickness you desire.

This gives you the outlined text. For the transparent inside, repeat all of the above except don't stroke your path, Fill Path with white. Then you can experiment with the transparency of your layer using the layers pallet. Just make sure the outline type is above the stroked type.

When you combine it with your other art, you should be able to see the background through the fill.

Let me know if you have any other questions, but I think this should be sufficient to have answered both your original and second question...

Almost at the bottom of the floating tool bar are two squares, one behind the other signifying foreground and background color. Click on the foreground color square. (if it is not in front, you will need to click twice) the Color Picker (mixer) window will pop up and you can use that to choose your color.
