Do you want some recommendations for books and online tutorials on the above topics?

and then ask for some UML advice, maybe that will work.
is there is specific forums on UML to post and see some of related past questions

I would start asking a number of different questions for the seven bullets in my first post.
If you want book or online links, then ask for them specifically in each bullet.

Sure. I will take one small step at a time as you suggested.
