Okay, I only have the first answer.
You fight by right clicking on the monster and clicking on the button that appears above it.
The next thing that happens is the battle starts and half the screen will be divided into red and green I believe. Green is the space in the battle area where you can place your character.
Click on a green square where you want to place your character and wait.
Then when it`s your turn, move where you want to go and then click on a spell/attack at the bottom of the screen and then click on the monster to attack.
I`ll post screen shots and a more detailed explanation later when I get home.
