You'll need to learn your chosen programming language first.  Given you've chosen C++, I usually recommend LearnCpp, but I don't know of a good set of videos -- perhaps someone else can recommend something.

 

You'll want to follow that up by learning a graphics API such as SDL (Lazy Foo's tutorials) or SFML (Game From Scratch tutorial).

 

All the other questions you've asked won't be important until you've learned the basics of programming.

 

 

You might also consider trying to do some more basic research for yourself -- all of the questions you have asked can be answered with simple Google searches.

Worry about OpenGL, physics, AI, GLSL, and any other topics you're interested in later.  They need to wait until you understand the basics -- you won't be able to properly understand or apply any of these things until you've learned how to write code.

An engine will save you a lot of time, and you won't have to take care of all the "tedious" details, however if you like that type of thing you can start from scratch( you will learn a lot at the very least if you stick with the hard way ). The GPU Gems and GPU Pro series are also pretty good for various techniques.
