Mate, I can tell from this email this is probably the first time
you've used Maven.
Congratulations! And enjoy your journey.

But you are trying to be a master painter when you haven't even tried
finger painting.

Take a deep breath and relax, do yourself a favour and just get some
basic skills.
I recommend:
* Browse around
** Under "Learning Maven"
** Read "Run Maven"
** Read "Use Maven"
*** Especially " The 5 minute test - Learn how to use Maven in 5

If you have someone locally who already knows Maven you might want to
ask them if they can spare some time to help you out.
If not, don't worry but it would help speed up the process.

There is a list of free books at
Both "Apache Maven 2: Effective Implementation" and "Maven: The
Definitive Guide" are good books to read/skim.

After this, you should be able to answer your own questions easily.
