Thalo, welcome to the BF!

You can check out this,

http://www.parktool.com/repair_help/index.shtml

I can`t recommend a good book, but i think there will be other members who can help you out with that.

Regards,

I own several bicycle repair books. My "go to" is "Bicycling Magazine's Complete Guide to Bicycle Repair and Maintenance". It has good step by step instructions and pictures. Just one neophyte's opinion.

"Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance" - approximately - is also good.
