    Paul and Jesse can probably help you out way better than I can but I
did notice one thing that may be causing you some confusion.

    Qjackctl starts jackd as a separate process.  When you start jackd
from the command line, as you did above, if you want to continue to use
the same "terminal" you need to start it in the background.  You do this
by adding an & to the command line so the line above would look like

jackd -R -dalsa -r44100 &

That way you can continue to use the same terminal.  It really doesn't
matter whether you do it that way or kick off another terminal.  This
may be "intuitively obvious to the most casual observer" but, since you
said you were a newbie, I figured I might as well point it out ;-) 
Personally, I just use qjackctl.
