Sure, I'll be available. Just don't expect too much. I'm an enthusiastic beginner when it comes to programming. Confused should have been my middle name So I understand where you are coming from...
I suggest doing a search on youtube for qtcreator. Theres several video tutorials that I found useful...

it is a very well known Windows c++ IDE that has a native linux build as well. it is used all over the world and is very powerfull, im sure if you like VC++ you will enjoy Codeblocks, and best part of all, its in the software manager and is free. or you can install it via the terminal "sudo apt-get install codeblocks" ( i think that is the correct command.

Cinnamon is using the Gtk+ toolkit natively, for which you'd use Glade to design the GUI: http://glade.gnome.org/. You can still write a Qt application and use it on a Gtk+ desktop environment, and vice versa, but usually you'd prefer to use the native toolkit.

It should be a program where tutorials already exist.
