For #3 you would select a Mach3 post processor in your Vectric program. Mach3, which you will also need to purchase, is your control program which translates G code into actual electrical impulses to the motors.

Obviously that's a very simple explanation and there's probably a lot in that that will trip you up.
As has been said (and as you'e started) the best thing is to keep plugging away with the tutorial videos and FAQ's at http://support.vectric.com

Aspire has more features than V-Carve, which has more features than Cut2D. Vectric provides an upgrade path if you eventually need to move to a Vectric program with more features.
February is all clear and I can spend some extended time trying stuff out
