Wa alykum as-Salaam (and peace be upon you) sister. May Allaah grant you success, and make your path easy to His Mercy and Paradise ameen.
Here is a good link which has many links in regard to performing the prayer:
About listening to tapes, there are some good lectures which you can download from this site which are in English:
If i am able to find anymore information relevant to you, i will try to post it insha Allaah (God willing.) And i pray that Allaah helps you, and provides for you.
This is a good link for new muslims:
We pray to Allaah that He removes your difficulty, and i want you to know that none of this is going un-noticed;
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “A Muslim is not afflicted by hardship, sickness, sadness, worry, harm, or depression—even if pricked by a thorn—but Allah expiates his sins because of that”
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
We will keep you in our prayers sister, and always remember, Allaah says:
Therefore remember Me, I will remember you, and be thankful to Me, and do not be ungrateful to Me.
[Qur'an 2: 152]
