Unix/Linux is just an operating system.
Command Line Interface is about system/user interface.... this is how all users use to access the system and basically how the system interacts with itself (sorta).
I know nothing about those.

In all honesty man, I think running a *nix OS on a server if you get one is a bad move for you since you didn't even know what they are, nor do you understand that a GUI is a shiny front end for CLI.

The best use for a server if you build one would be as a VM Host (You can use VMWare ESXi, but its not free, so I reccomend ProxMox).... But then again these are both *nix based and therefore you'll probably be more comfortable installing windows running VMWare workstation and messing around with Linux virtual machines.

It sounds like you have an awful lot to learn, so you may as well start now.
