When you downloaded it, you should have also gotten a downloaded manual. Try that and the help icon. I'm not sitting in front of it so I can't be of much more assistance. Sorry.

You know how to change the brush don't you?

You click the box that has a little circle in it; you can get many different styles from that

Close to it you should see something that says 'opacity' that decides how faint or solid the brush is

And below that is the Size tool, it should have a bar but I don't usually use that. I usually use size 0.40 brush when using GIMP

Depends on the type for shading you want. You can add more to the color scale to make that same color darker and give it the cartoonish look. Or like Spartan said, you can use something like the burn tool to help.
