I still want to learn the powerful C++ though, will flash be easy to learn for me? My overall questions are:
1) Is it worth learning a more web-based simple language alongside c++?
2) What language (eg.Flash) works best and why?
3)How do I get started with this language, will this language be easy to learn for somebody who knows c++?

3. You get started with it like with any other language, look for learning materials (books, tutorials, online references, etc.). Knowledge of C++ should provide you with a good understanding of general programming, so it shouldn't be too hard for you to pick it up.

Only now do I feel comfortable going into C++ which is a bit harder, but still a piece of cake to understand because of previous experiences.
I did however feel that Flash Games in general are a bit limited, which is why I'm going into C++ now, but don't get discourages. Actionscript 3.0 with all the new updates and the newly added Stage3D you have amazing performance, proper 3D graphics support and best of all you can create games for smartphones.

Another thing I noticed was that C++ is not web-based
It is still in its infancy, but you may want to take a look at WebGL
