3. I know how to use 'em, but I'm not sure I know how to explain 'em.

Givin' it a try...

Affect is a verb, effect is a noun. If A affects B, B experiences the effect of A’s action.

And yes, I Googled it.

5. Not quite

and that is what is so confusing to me.

Effect is both a noun and a verb.

ef·fect
/əˈfekt/Submit
noun
1.
a change which is a result or consequence of an action or other cause.
"the lethal effects of hard drugs"
synonyms: result, consequence, upshot, outcome, outturn, sequel, reaction, repercussions, reverberations, ramifications; More
2.
the lighting, sound, or scenery used in a play, movie, or broadcast.
"the production relied too much on spectacular effects"
verb
1.
cause (something) to happen; bring about.
"nature always effected a cure"
synonyms: achieve, accomplish, carry out, succeed in, realize, attain, manage, bring off, carry off, carry through, execute, conduct, fix, engineer, perform, do, perpetrate, discharge, fulfill, complete, finish, consummate, conclude; More

13. "effect" as a verb is an insult to the language

like "data" as a collective noun instead of a plural noun.

It is "the data say" not "the data says"

12. Think "Cause and Effect" both are nouns

and "i.e. and "e.g." -- "e.g." is "Example Gratis" which means "For example"

So the other one - "i.e." -- means "In other words (id est)"
