If you came to me for guitar lessons I too could slice you to ribbons for all that you don't know.

Yes, because I know nothing.

But that is a very poor way of teaching guitar.

And so is what you are doing.

Suppose I came to you for help with my guitar playing, and told you that I was learning on my own by guessing what to do and wondering why I can't play as fast as others - but the forks and spoons I jam under the frets to select the notes to strum take me too long to pull out and move?

Clearly, I don't know enough to play the guitar because I've spent so long guessing what to do instead of sitting down and actually learning the right way!

And that's where you are with development. You've found code that does some of what you want, but you don't understand how it works - or even exactly what it is doing - so you can't change it to do something else yourself. And for the same reasons as me with my guitar spoons - they work for me, but not very well - I need to be taken back to the beginning and learn how to play in a structured way that introduces chords and so on in a logical progression.

Seriously, even as a hobby this is a complicated subject and it really benefits from learning the basics thoroughly before you try to rush ahead to "more interesting" projects.
