Pick a language, any langauge. C++ has lots of info on them, but if you're just starting programming then you would be a little better off starting with Python and Pygame. (google python).

If you are really set on moving to C++ quickly, I would suggest you start with Java. It is very similar but lacks some of C++'s harder features.

As for what you should use for graphics, you have lots of options. If you don't know what languages to use for games yet, then you shouldn't be worrying about graphics. Make some text games, and something with simple hand coded graphics (not sure how easy this is in C++/phyton or others, but Java is fairly easy)

Here would be a great place to start looking for info.
In general any programming language is going to allow you to create games. To do graphics you will need some sort of API (Application Programming Interface) that you will code with your language of choice. I reccomend that you read through everything in the link provided, as that will get you off to a great start.
