1. Scales are collections of notes that generally sound good together. They are used to form solos, chord progressions, vocal lines, melodies...you could say they're good to know.

2. The difference is how thick the plastic is. Beginners generally find thinner picks easier to use, as they can allow for easier chord playing, which beginners spend a lot of time doing. However, more advanced players often use thicker picks as they allow for easier speedy playing. I use a 1.14mm pick which is pretty thick.

3. Barre chords are hell. You will hate your guitar when you're learning them. But they're very important. You have to practice. There's no trick.

4. Pickups are what allow an electric guitar to be amplified. Here's a wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pickup_%28music%29

Pickups are like microphones. They detect the vibrations of the metal strings. If you yell into your pickups, you could not hear your voice through the amp. However, there are things you can do with electricity and magnetism and the like to mess with the pickups. For instance, putting a rotating drill near your pickups will create a sound.
