Welcome to JavaRanch!

Have you look at the WebSphere site yet? It answers some of the basic questions like what WAS is and the differences between editions. If you don't know this, it is too early to answer the other questions.

Also, what resource are you using for learning WebSphere? Do you have a book? If not, the redbooks are free.
