You probably know fifths aswell. Also known as power chords. What about barre chords?

I don't think you should go in any particular order. You say you know major and minor, well the rest are just additions. There are formulas for chords that you just have to memorize. Check this out: http://www.smithfowler.org/music/Chord_Formulas.htm

It's everything about music. You know, scales, keys, intervals, tones, semitones, rhythm, transposition. If you study music theory you basically study the language of music.

would a UG lesson be the best way of learning something like that or do you know of a better way?

The advantage to learning theory is that you can construct chords, or read the name of a chord and know what to play.

For example: I helped one of my friends (who is playing guitar in pit band for the musical) learn how to play a Dsus7, without needing to look it up on the internet. It is extremely helpful to know theory.
