I watched Digitalrev and Froknowsfoto on youtube, did some googling when needed and went from there, still an amateur at best but I think guides are a tad constricting.

18-55mm is the focal length. basically where the rear element of the lens is compared to the sensor/film plane (while at infinity focus). so on any format a 18mm lens is 18mm away from the sensor/film plane.

f/4 is the aperture pupil size in respect to the focal length of the lens itself. so a lens which is 300mm will have a much larger aperture pupil area at f/1 then a 14mm lens at f/1.

It should, otherwise it would indicate shell only or no darkslide.
