This ^^ AGO is the best website on the internet for detailing. You can see everything from shops detailing million dollar cars, to Mike Phillips making incredible youtube videos explaining the basics.

Detailing is a just as big of a part of cars as hobby, as exterior, performance etc. You can do as much or as little as you want.
The new DA (dual action) orbital polishers are pretty dummy-proof, so that may be a good option to achieve above average results, with less than average experience.
