Russian help, please?

Hey, I'm teaching myself Russian (wooo, it's about damn time, too!), and I have a question about how to say й, ъ, and ь when saying the alphabet (especially the first one, because it doesn't sound anything like the way I was told to pronounce it when reading a word).

Also, as you can see I've got it to where I can type the language, but it takes forever considering I press every freaking key until I find the one I need. Is there an easier way to get around this? I know for French and Italian I put it on the international keyboard at first, and I never had this issue with Japanese, so I'm clueless.
