Chords are three or more notes played at the same time. Power chords are only two notes, but they're something seperate. Major chords use the 1st, 3rd, and 5th of the major scale to create them, and minor chords use the 1st, 3rd and 5th of the minor scale, more commonly shown as the 1st, b3rd, and 5th of the major scale. the "b" means "flattened", ie played a semitone lower. So in the key of C these chords would be:
C Major: C E G
C Minor: C Eb G

Arpeggio's are chords played note by note, so a C Major 7 arpeggio would be played as C E G B, although, they could be played in any order. In other words, arpeggio's are broken up chords.

Scales are what all theory revolves around, essentially. Everything refers back to the major scale (as you can probably see from how I wrote the chord spellings above). You use scales to decide what notes can be used in a conventional piece of music. In C Major, the notes are C D E F G A B C. No sharps (#), and no flats (b). You then use these notes right across the range of your chosen instrument in order to make a piece of music in that key (the key of C Major in this case).

You can use any combination of notes to make melodies or chords, but not all the chords will be major chords, because if you start the scale on the 6th degree (A), you have the A Minor scale: A B C D E F G A. This has the same notes as the C Major scale, but because everything resolves to the minor chord, not the major, it has a minor (sad) feel to it.
