Speed= Shutter Speed
A= Apeture
I you are asking about the meaning of the above this suggests you are just starting out so the best setting is P[Program]
This lets the camera select for its self the optimum settings.
With more than 60 years of photography behind me - I still use 'P' for snapping around.
If you want to go further you will have go get a good book.

That depends on what you're taking a picture of. The various scene modes are designed for different types of pictures---portraits, landscapes, etc. There is no one setting that is best for all pictures.

You have to change it to supported format such as avi or mpg.

what do you mean dark? if they are underexposed... extend you exposure time.

There is a small round button near the shutter release... hold that down, and rotate that thumb wheel thingy. You can over or underexpose your camera's auto metering by 2 stops in 1/2 stop increments...

After that, you should learn how to take control of the camera and shoot in manual mode. It give you the ultime power
