Oh no! You really must know these things! Your fish may die! I believe the Nitrogen Cycle page explains fairly well. Alkaline refers to pH. The more alkaline your water is, the higher your pH. The more Acidic your water is, the lower your pH.

Also most here use and recommend the master kit from api. It is a must. Heres a link to it

That's the test kit I was going to suggest as well.  It's really easy, it comes with great instructions and info about the readings. It's on sale here:

Your ammonia should be zero, it can be fatal to your fish. That kit will test for ammonia.
