Wikipedia is probably the best place to start. You'll be able to click into details about any specific component you feel like reading about.

Arguably the motherboard is the center of any PC system so I'd start here

Then all you want to know is best X for Y task. In that case you don't want to learn, you just want to know. I'd just read the best X for the $ articles on this site. That or come into the forum and just say I've got ? money and need to do this, what board should I get.

I've had both ASUS and Gigabyte boards and I've preferred Gigabyte. In the past their boards have looked a bit Fisher Price thanks to their colour scheme but the boards always worked well. These days they have better schemes!

Whilst Intel processors are more expensive they have controlled the high performance crown for a while. If you can afford it a fancy new i7 will not hold back your gaming. That being said it depends on what you want to play and your budget!

It's my understanding the Xeon processors are more targeted for servers and typically have more cache and better multi threading capabilities. If you are more interested in gaming you are probably better just sticking to the desktop line of processors and putting extra money you'd save into a better graphics card.
