Where you save your files (generally speaking) is up to you. Sure, they should be saved somewhere your Apache can request them. htdocs is the default root directory Apache can request, so your files should be saved inside that folder or inside any subfolder of it.
The JQuery core library should be included from an external file because of readability and it's best practice to separate vendor scripts from own created.
Or even better (but just for production environments), include JQuery from an Open CDN like Google:http://code.google.com/apis/libraries/d ... tml#jquery
Your own JQuery code files can be either inline script inside html documents or external files too. external files are preferred because separation is best practice.

That really depends on what you want to learn.
graphicsman wrote:4. Similar to the installation of Joomla, do i install everything in the Htadocs folder?
Or in a subfolder of it.
Apache can be configurated very deeply, so that you can do nearly everything you can think of. But for now (beginner state) stay inside the (subfolder of) htdocs
