Specifically, the keyboard.

Or, atleast, I think. I'm completely clueless when it comes to this.

What's the difference between a Synthesizer and a Digital Piano? Or, are they essentially the same thing?

I'd appreciate some guidance. It would be very welcome.

Get a Roland SH-201.

Then read some theory on substractive synthesis.

and learn some songs.

I went and looked it up on Musicians Friend.

A whole lot of nobs and buttons.

Anyone care to elaborate on what exactly the majority of these tools are used for?

Keyboards/piano/organ are great to learn. I would recommend getting good lessons - and boring as you may think, classical training is the best way to get ****ing good.

Go learn drums, though. People always need good drummers. If you want.

I once tried getting into another instrument.
The doctors had to remove it from my penis.
It took 9 hours.

Was it a harmonica?

A synthesizer can create entirely original sounds using a combination of oscillators that generate pitch in several different timbres, filters, and etc.

A keyboard is a series of presets that you play on.

With your hands you can control my pitch and volume.
You can play around with my knobs hoping something interesting happens.
And you can turn me on.

I really like my Korg R3. It's a surprisingly strong starter synth. more effective than the SH-201!

A synthesizer can be in forms other than a keyboard, it can be a computer-controlled synth (most electronically-based artists use them), or a guitar-synth (think Pat Metheny or John McLaughlin), or a (for example, Michael Brecker).
Digital pianos on the other hand.... well, they are always keyboards. That's the difference.
