Roughly "Magnetic Lasso--> Copy --> New Layer --> Paste"? Check out the Digital Darkroom section for the experts' advice, I ain't very good at PS either.

It depends on the subject and the background, some are easy, while others takes hours. Sometimes it is easier to re shoot on a white background.

For well defined edges, use the pen tool. It can allow for very precise selections. As for edges like hair, fur, etc... Extract would be a better choice. With the pen tool, selections will come out crisp and sharp... so you may want to do a feather (1-3 pixels will be fine). Alternatively, you can use the blur tool to blur the hard edges too.
