Need to gather up a repair kit for flats

I just got into cycling these past few weeks.

I haven't had a single flat yet, but a lot of you guys have. So I want to be prepared a gather up a repair kit in my wedge pack just in case.

I'm a little confused about a few things. Firstly, what exactly is a spare tube? Is it a spare tire? If so, how would it fit in a wedge pack?

I'll need a patch kit, I get the understanding of that. But what should I use to inflate the tire? Should I buy a minipump to attach to my frame or get CO2 cartidges.

How do CO2 cartidges work? Are they better than just air?

If anyone could clear things up for me or direct me to a site that has info, I would be grateful. Thanks.
