If you want to know all of the VHF procedures then you may want to read H.O pub 102 to find out all of the correct procedures.
Again I'm sure that listening to the VHF you could slowly gain the skills necessary in using one. Just remember that this is not CB and CB procedures & codes are not used or allowed on the marine bands of VHF.

A part of etiquette and law is you must be off the radio for 2 min's on the hour and 2 min's on the 1/2 hour so that any faint distress calls can be heard.

The 3 minute "quiet" periods apply to watch on 2182 kHz. There is no corresponding silent period on VHF (in the US or by international law at least). There used to be a corresponding quiet period at 15 and 45 minutes past the hour for 500 kHz morse code distress traffic.

Even this has gone now, since the introduction of DSC on VHF and MF/HF

Don't worry Bubb... at your age, the hearing starts to go and you'll soon have all the peace and quiet you could possibly want.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Up here, in the great white north, you have to have a Restricted Radio Operators License to legally use a VHF radio. Take a course, pay your money, learn proper rules and protocols. Failure to do so results in a nasty fine.
I would be surprised if the US doesn't have similar legislation.

We used to.

When everyone discovered it was a Government money-making scheme and wasn't making boating more safe it was done away with.
