I would say that once you express interest, you are definitely in the right place!
Lazarus and FreePascal come with an enormous library of examples.  Look for something along the lines of what interests you, then see how it ticks.  tehre are lots of online resources for Pascal, and this forum is strong and responsive.
Ask away!

Yes, you're in the right place.

Since you have no experience in programming, I suggest you get a good Pascal programming book, I recommend "Oh Pascal" from Doug Cooper.  It is an old book that doesn't cover OOP but, it's filled with good programming advice.  You can usually get a used copy for a very reasonable amount.  Between what is covered in that book and asking questions here, you will probably be able to get up to speed fairly quickly (less than a month for basic stuff.)

HTH.
using FPC v3.0.4 and Lazarus 1.8.2 on Windows 7 64bit.
