Video on the web can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. If its a newer pc it probably has windows movie maker built in. This is an easy program to use and will give you a general idea on how to use timelines to build a project. It also has lots of settings for output.
Moving up there are programs from Sony and Pinnacle which will allow you to do more but again the learning curve gets higher the more you want to do.(hey just like this hobby!)
If you are going to be playing with HD video you will need a newer machine with lots of power to grind away at rendering the large size of HD files.

I do have a hd camcorder, and a super fast and powerful PC. What do you mean grind away at rendering?

Putting video into a computer is easy and generally happens in real time.(Unless your camera has a hard drive then you can just transfer files.)
Getting video out is another story. The computer has to render every frame of video and convert it down to the file type you want. Full size SD video is 720×480. Most video put on a website is half that, 320×240 or smaller. Hd video is even larger and contains more information so the render down process will take longer.
If you add graphics and effects the computer will have to render the effects into the mix and add more time to the process(more complex effects like green screen take even longer)
Now we are not talking days here or even hours. Just want you to know this will not happen instantly.
Even if you have a multi core computer it will take time as I dont believe any current consumer editing program has the ability to use multiple cores.
