I am looking for quick sources on specific nmap usage; network sniffing, and ping flooding. Do any of you guys have examples or good links that give me what I am looking for?

Nmap is not exactly for classic 'sniffing', it is a network scanner.
Wireshark can be used for sniffing network traffic.
Ping flooding can be done by the stock or custom ping applications under most operating systems.

(Please note: sniffing and ping flooding outside your own learning lab can get you into serious trouble. But I assume you have decent goals, like learning.)

Likewise do have good intent on use of such tool in lab as kickstart. I suggest you take a look at security onion.

https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/wiki/Tools

Nmap itself ( or zenmap) below may help but it is not for sniffing, security onion has tcpdump and networkminer
