I'm sorry but I won't be able to help at the level you're seeking. What I can say is that there are plenty of examples out there and even plugins (Search string: wordpress author bio page) that might do exactly what you're trying to do on your own. Since you're not an experienced PHP programmer perhaps you might want to utilize something that someone else has already built? Even if it doesn't do exactly what you want it will likely get you 90% of the way there AND one or more of these will likely have already built final piece you're searching for.
