What's behind the hint?

I’ve obtained quite a bit of resources on hinting recently but still don’t really understand it. I am having trouble hinting on fontlab because I don’t really understand what points I need to choose to “hint” my font, nor do I know what parts, besides horizontal and vertical stems need to be hinted. Also, what is the difference with link and hint? Links have those arrow paths, is that what I need to use? Is there a video tutorial on fontlab lingering around?

Sorry for the mass questions, I’m really eager to finish my first font.

Thank you.
