So, how would knowing scales, chord progressions and the circle of fifths help with making up riffs and improvising? And how would I make up the rhythm/riff from learning this?

easy tiger, one thing at a time...this stuff comes a bit later on, like after you've got a guitar. I don't want to discourage you from learning but you have to pace yourself, there's a hell of a lot to learn with the guitar and you can't do it all at once. The first few months of learning are mainly about simply getting to grips with the basic mechanics of playing the guitar, the theory can wait.
Actually called Mark!

Lol, I suppose I should pace myself, getting a bit too far there... maybe even buy a bass.. Lol
