Yes, you write SQL statements.  But even if you write MySQL programs in
a programming language, you're likely to be telling the language to execute
SQL statements according to whatever functions your API provides for doing

No need to be afraid.  However ...
It sounds like you'd find it worthwhile spending a little time reading
the MySQL manual.  The URL for the reference manual is at the bottom

Anything like this is difficult is bound to be difficult if you don't use
the information that is available to you.  Without being able to say for
certain, I'd guess that this might one cause of your difficulties using
PHP with Oracle as well.

Umm .. don't know what to say.  I'm not sure what you're asking.
