What kind of music do you want to learn to play? Bluegrass, clawhammer, jazz, Celtic? Once you decide that, then we can recommend teachers, books, videos, etc.

You might want to post your question(s) in the forum genre that you want to learn; i.e., bluegrass, claw, etc.

As far as making chords correctly, you can make partial chords and not use that particular finger, it can be done.
