Like many point&shoot cameras the JZ300 doesn't give you direct control over the shutter speed; you're expected to just point and shoot.
You can indirectly affect the shutter speed by changing scene modes. For example the sports mode will try to use faster shutter speeds while the landscape mode will narrow the aperture for greater depth of field resulting in a slower shutter speed.
In any of the point&shoot modes the camera will decide whether to fire the flash or not.
In the P, S, A, and M modes, press the MENU button. Select "Show all menus" and press the button in the center of the multiselector (I'll call this the OK button from here on). Scroll down to "Speedlight opt" and press OK. Select "Speedlight cntl" and press OK. Select "Internal off" and press OK.
Full details are in the "Speedlight Options" section of the manual (page 104 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.
First of all, you need to be out of the point&shoot modes. Those modes are designed to let you point the camera and shoot, with very little control over the resulting picture besides the framing and timing.
ISO sensitivity is in the Shooting menu. Rotate the mode dial to P, M, or Hi ISO, then press the MENU button. Use cursor-up/down to select "ISO Sensitivity".
Assuming you're in one of the point&shoot modes (any mode other than the PSAM modes), press and hold the flash button on the front of the camera and turn the main command dial on the back to cycle through the available flash modes. To turn flash off, select the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it.
In the PSAM modes the flash will not pop up on its own.
One problem with most point&shoot cameras is that they are designed to be pointed and shot. The camera takes care of things automatically, including focus.
The H50 doesn't have a manual focus mode. The best you can do for close-ups is to switch to one of the Macro modes. Press left on the control button (marked with a blooming flower) repeatedly to select the desired mode. See page 18 in your manual for full details.
e “shoot and select” modes allows you to select an image out of a sequence of still pictures you have taken by depressing the shutter button and storing it. This is best for shooting moving objects.
SHOOT & SELECT 1: Shoots a rapid succession of 4 still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed.
SHOOT & SELECT 2: Shoots a succession of still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed. The Stylus 500 will continue to shoot until you take your finger off the shutter button or until the card is full. After shooting, you will have the option to immediately delete the pictures you do not wish to keep.

In order to shoot "HI" TIFF images first set the Image Size option to either "5M 2592x1944" or "3:2 2592x1728." Next, choose "HI" as the Image Quality option.
"HI" is only available in one of the manual exposure modes (P, S, A or M) and is not available in the "Auto" shooting mode. If "HI" is selected and the camera is switched to "Auto" the Image Quality will automatically switch to "FINE" mode and a JPEG image will be recorded.
Additionally, "HI" is only available in "S" Single frame Continuous shooting.
