C1.......... lesson 1 help needed

For upgrading my PP skills I opted for C1.

The tutorials are going to fast for me (I must be to old, approaching 70).

Bought the Sacha Erni book, but it scared me almost away from C1.

(Any one for a better book for a beginning user?)

So I kindly ask this friendly forum to help me with my first questions.

Workflow summary:

1) I Go to Canada for a nice holyday

2) I created under Windows 10 file manager a new folder called Canada-2017

3) I copy my photos from my camera card(s) to this folder

Question 1:

Culling the 1500 or so foto's to the best 100 or so, do I also use C1 for this?

If so, HOW?

Question 2:

Once I have the 100 or so photos I want to crop, straighten and rework the lighting, do I use the IMPORT function for ALL these 100 photo's or do I just IMPORT them one by one as I go?

Question 3:

Do I use the SESSION function for this or the CATALOGUE function

Below are two of the shots I aim to do some PP on.

I put 8 of them in my Galleries under Canada, they are there as complete OOC photos.

Thanks for your help
