In practice not much. Some companies use the term "micro" while others use "macro" to mean the same thing, taking close-ups. Technically it isn't macro (or micro) unless it's life-size or bigger (1:1 or better), though many companies will stretch that to include anything about quarter life-size or bigger.
That's life-size on the film or sensor, so it'll be much larger than life-size when printed.

I would like an instruction manual please.


The user manuals coming with lenses most of the time have little information about how to use them. The lens will have a MF and AF and perhaps a VR switch. If you want to learn more about macro photography, check this site from Ken Rockwell, where he is explaining how to do so with a Nikon camera.
Be aware the macro lenses are designed to focus close to the camera and will have the sharpest pictures close to the camera. I would not say you can't use a micro as a tele, but the results with a normal 105 could be better.
Still I think you have a great lens with your Sigma.

How do you turn the flash on and off? Every time I hit the flash button it says "micro mode" on the screen.


Turn off the macro mode. There's a switch on the left side of the camera, near the USB port. Slide it away from the flower icon to turn off macro mode.

Sticking aperture


Yes. A good camera technician can partially disassemble the lens and then thoroughly clean the blades and the rest of the aperture diaphragm mechanism. This is commonly referred to as an internal CLA (cleaning, lubrication, and adjustment). This is a very nice macro lens and it is worth repairing if it otherwise is in exceptionally nice condition.

I'd like to purchase a micro lens for my Nikon camera. My question is: Does the Phoenix AF 100mm f/3 5 Macro Telephoto Lens used with Nikon D 90''


If the Phoenix lens is autofocus (AF) in Nikon mount, it will work with the D90. You may find that you want to switch to manual focus when you are using it for macro shots for better control of focus. It will still set exposure properly when set to manual focus.

I cannot get super macro mode


Turn the dial- the one that lets you select a mode. You have to be in certain modes to allow for super macro.... (I have a powershot S2) Try AV or manual, or a couple of others. There are a few that will not allow super macro. That's your problem. Good luck!

Macros with expired signature.


go to tools->options->security
click on "macro security" button
change security level to "medium" or "low".

be aware that low security on macros means viruses can attack your computer through word documents. don't leave it on that setting for too long.

Macros are harder to understand than they are to create and use. Let me repeat "Macros are harder to understand than they are to create and use."
Here is the only understanding that you need. "they are used for repetive tasks" .

Now to the simple part of creating then using.
Get into your work and identify a task that you want to created macro for, Kapish? Just before you start on the task go into the macros screen and tell it to "create", then do your task. When through "push the stop button. Name the micro and save it. (the name may be the first step if so then give the darn thing a name, no big deal). The next time you are in the exact field where the identical task is going to be perforned you can call up the micro to run through the key strokes for you. Get ready for wildly unexpected results, with those understood you can go into the code and modify it. Or you can delete it and create anotherone that is cleaner. Keep doing this until you get the bugs out. By the way the once created micros leave a tag in the spreadsheet that alerts everyone that opens it to watch out for the dreaded micro you created.
