Hi,
Auto means that all settings will be automated by the camera.
Shutter Priority means you set the shutter speed and the camera will adjust the aperture according to your selection.
Aperture Priority means you set the aperture stop and the camera will adjust the shutter speed according to your selection.
Both Shutter Priority & Aperture Priority are also known as semi-auto mode in some cases. If you want to have full control over the settings, use Manual mode. But I think most people use Aperture or Shutter Priority mode.

Yes. In general, try to make the light meter pointer at the center. If the bar go to minus side, means your photo will be under exposure. If the bar go to plus side, means your photo will be over exposure.

program auto is simply auto mode. you dont think, just point and shoot

shutter priority and aperture priority - the names are self-explanatory
