can anyone explain to me how the kanji pages are worded? as in what are "onyomi" and "kunyomi"? Just a basic break down of the kanji pages would be nice.

so what are the red dots between the words? are those different ways of saying that particular word or are they like different definitions?

In Japanese writing, a central dot (called an 'interpunct' in English)・is sometimes used instead of a commas when writing lists.
It is also often used instead of a forward slash / to separate parallel alternative words/phrases/ideas, but sometimes for this they do use forward slash ／ like in English.
Check out this link for a better description of what ・ is used for:
It is also pretty handy for making bullet point lists when posting online:
