Will you either explain to me or point me to the info on how to use some HTML to make my signature or make the hypertext on a forum / blog into something other than my website URL's text. Make it to maybe a smiley face or another character. Whe you hover over the character with the mouse, then you can see the link to my site's URL....I hope you understand what im asking.

That's going to depend on the particular forum software in use. Straight HTML can do whatever you choose, but most forum software has scripts around what can and cannot be generated by a user. Security comes into play, for example.

Most forum software shares some heritage that makes that it uses bbcode.

In bbcode it would be something like:
[url=http://www.example.com][img]http://www.example.com/smiley.png[/img][/url]

blogs usually have a html editor, so you'd need something that creates the html:
<a href="http://www.example.com/"><img src="http://www.example.com/smiley.png" alt="smiley" /></a>

This board did support the bbcode euivalent till some time ago (minus the images), but its software is a bit deviate from what you find elsewhere, so you cannot anymore out here for now.
