Command Line refers to the "Terminal" (there should be one somehere in
your menu installed by default)

I don't think there is any one reference for all possible commands (but
then, all possible commands is pretty much infinite) But there should be
lots of "Getting started" tutorials with examples of simple/common commands.

is my first google hit for "Unix Command Line Introduction"
