One simple way of doing it:
1) Plug your phone into your pc, and move the APK file to your sd storage.
2) Use a file manager (say, Astro) to "open" the file. The system will suggest to install the app.

or

1) Upload the apk file to your web site, and link to it.
2) Click the link in your web browser. The system will suggest to install the app.

or

1) Use adb to install the file:
adb install [-l] [-r] <file>
push this package file to the device and install it
('-l' means forward-lock the app)
('-r' means reinstall the app, keeping its data)

I found a app called Appinstaller on the marketplace that installs apk files odd the sd card, worked like a charm.

If anyone can point me toward a thread or a direct link to more info on APK files, i'd appreesh. I want to try developing my own app, but need a starting point. Much thanks.

You won't learn much by looking at APK files; that's be like looking at EXE files. You want the source, so check out sourceforge and code.google.com and suchlike.
