Whether dialing numbers to make a call or sending a text, checking weather or just seeing what you have planned tomorrow, it's all done through specific apps. Some are basic to android ("vanilla" android if you will), some are customised by the phone maker (sense, touchwiz, blur) and some you can find in the market or elsewhere.

I'd say, just get used to how the phone works as it is, then start experimenting with new apps/widgets. For inspiration, check out the 'theme' or 'post your screen' threads. Lots of good stuff in there.
very well said.
