There are a good number of resources, both online and in print, that cover
a lot of what you're looking for. Also keep in mind that recording in the
studio has some different demands compared to recording live, but a lot of
the basic principles apply equally to both.
A Google search for "recording microphone techniques" or something similar
will yield some useful reading.
Some good books on recording and sound engineering that I've used are:
"Sound Reinforcement Handbook, Second Edition" by Gary Davis
This is a very technical read, and it's one that almost everyone who makes
a living from sound has in their library.
"The Mixing Engineer's Handbook" by Bobby Owsinski
Online, you can also find lots of good information on Mix Magazine's
website, http://www.mixonline.com/, and other places like
http://www.prosoundweb.com/ but you may want to take it in small doses
because there will be lots of industry jargon...
Hope this helps
