hello, I just wanted to know what finger everybody uses when turning F and B. I have a hard time trying to turn them, and I end up just turning them with my hand. I would also like to know how to grab the cubes in various algorithms.

It really depends on the grip in current situation.
e.g. doing R F R' from home grip I will use right ring finger push for F (making it effectively indistinguishable from Lw D Lw')

It depends on the situation. I recommend watching a variety of sources by people with a reputation for fast algorithm execution such as Brian Sun and, of course, Alex Davidson. Also, check out how they fingertrick in solves by playing the video very s l o w l y. Make sure you not only watch the videos but learn from them, grasp the fundamentals so you can figure it out intuitively. Experiment as much as you can.
