Kind of new to programing and if people had time i want some answers to a couple of questions?

1.I am lerning c++ at the moment, but i find it hard to understand how to use it (more then make programs).I would also be happy if any one could guide me to what more language's to learn.

Perl or Java or PHP would be a good next step but it doesn't sound like you know C++ very well and you should probably stick with it. It's a good language to know.

Corrected.

@OP: You need to learn at _least_ one programming language inside and out before moving to another. Once you've more or less mastered one language, you'll be able to pick up others quicker, and understand their concepts quicker.

Knowing a programming language helps you understand how other programs work, and thus how to break other programs.
