It would be alot of work to help you get a basic understanding of the army. You really just have to try them out
My best advice would be to go through the codex and make the best possible army you could; then post it on the Armylist board. The people there will further your understanding of the army immensely.
Sorry i couldnt help you more than that
If you are referring to the different Craftworlds, such as Biel-Tan, Saim-Han etc..., I wouldn't worry about it too much. You can make a perfectly fine army with just the standard Codex, without worrying about the specialist Craftworlds, and without needing to buy a second Codex.
Once you get a feel for Eldar, and 40k in general, you can decide if your preferred style of play would be better served by specialising, and make your decision then.
As others said:Get used to the normal codex first, then go out and exploring the difrent craftworlds.
Though I are going to write the Craftworld:
UlthwÃ©: Psychic Death & Help (frying brains and helping you with shooting and survive) some better Guardians aswell.
Alaitoc: Sneek behind enemy lines, snipeing&pinning down and hideing in cover.
Iyanden: Dead Eldar warriors who march again to oblitirate enemies in close range.
Beil-tan: Aspect/Elite Warriors of the Craftworld armies who conquer their enemies with ancient warrior skills.
Saim Hann - hairdessers on jetbikes
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I like the sound of Alaitoc and Beil-ta. But I will buy the original codex first, get used to it, then get the craftworlds codex, is that right?
