First, I just wanna say thanks for the years of awesomeness. Second, how long do you think it took you to get used to the interface in Flash? I've had it for a few months now, and I still find myself having trouble going from frame to frame sometimes haha.
If you’re having trouble going from frame to frame try using < and >.
As for Flash in general, I can recommend some great tutorials for getting your head around it!

What would you consider to be the most competent approach in amassing a familiarity with Color Theory?
Go outside really early in the morning and watch the sun rise. You’ll see some really beautiful colors depending on the weather. If you don’t live in a flat area, look at how the value changes on the mountains and hills that are further and further away. Don’t think of things as “SKY IS BLUE GRASS IS GREEN”, that’s not always the case. Colour is a very hard thing to learn and it takes a lot of patience. I’m still very much learning it myself and I feel there’s always more to learn.
Look at the colour wheel to establish what colour works with what. A great way of understanding colour is reading up on the different types of colour compositions/combinations.
Colour that is pretty much entirely the same, minus some changes in the hue.
Colours that are on dead opposite sides of the wheel.
One of the colours with two opposites that are evenly close to one another.
Two pairs that are on opposite sides of the wheel. Changing the distance equals a change in contrast.
Adjacent colours. A bunch that are right next to each other.
Three evenly placed colours on the wheel.
Every single person will have their different approaches to colour, it’s just up to you to find what works for you.
Also I even though I live in the US now, I will still always spell “colour” like that!

There’s literally hundreds of great drawing, manga, comic, painting, sculpting, and art related books on this site. The website language is in Russian but many of the books are in their native language. Hopefully this is as helpful to many others as it was to me!
Here’s a handy dandy color reference chart for you artists, writers, or any one else who needs it! Inspired by this post x
