There is the adobe docs of course which has tutorials, sites like https://www.okaysamurai.com/CHFAQ/ with lots of useful links when things go wrong, and a series i did a few years back (so getting out of date a bit) which turns a photo of a toy wookie into a puppet https://extra-ordinary.tv/2018/10/22/project-wookie-a-beginner-youtube-playlist/

To move hands the normal way is to use a "dragger". To change hand poses, use a "swap set" of "triggers" (you have to draw each hand pose then swap the artwork as needed).

 

Try looking for those terms in user guides etc.
