Fiberglass Confusion

The world of fiberglass is one of those magical worlds I have never understood and chalked up to voodoo. However, now that we own a boat I would like to bring back the decks luster (the gelcoat is oxidized) and patch up some nicks and scrapes on the hull and deck. Is there anywhere I can turn to learn about fiberglass its care and improvements? I've been reading a number of posts here on SailNet and must admit to being completely baffled between the resins, epoxies, waxes, gels, glosses, sealants, polysomthings and the like. I'm even trying YouTube to learn more but am getting more product placement than education. Any help would be, um, helpful.
