As the first step, I suggest that you create an AWS account - it is free to create one, and you even get a bunch of free services during you first year of usage. The AWS console has links to all the documentation you can possibly use.

You will notice that AWS already has a console that supports all of its services, and a decent one at that.
Choose one service to work with.

Here's an idea:
Many services are tied to a region. For example, EC2 is completely regional. Each region has its set of security key, security groups and AMIs.
Create a console that manages EC2 keys, AMIs and security groups centrally, and lets you drag and drop between regions.

Ok, here is a 12 year old kid question,

Is Amazon cloud similar as a hosting company with cool features? Don't bash me for this question.

VPS and hosting companies have been around for the past 15-20 years.  
The so called cool features make AWS something which is different than a hosting company.
The coolest feature is agility of deployment. This is what cloud computing is all about.

Our support site is a single EC2 small instance, with mysql database running on RDS.
I could put it on a dedicated hosting plan somewhere. However, being on AWS gives me tools that normally only a $1M datacenter has. I have infinite and available storage, backup tools, monitoring, DR and HA capabilities that no hosting plan can give me.
A few days ago, on Sep 11, our support web site was hit by an attack.
Within minutes I had a fresh, pristine server started from our up to date private AMI, and then I could take time to evaluate whether there was any damage to the data and how the attack was conducted. I could never respond like this in a traditional hosting service.

One final question, what is the practical difference btw. Amazon AWS and EC2?

AWS is the entire brand of all Amazon cloud services.
EC2 is a specific AWS service that provides compute power on demand.
Other services include RDS, S3, SQS, SNS, DynamoDB, etc.........
