Hello, I am a complete beginner, I would like to know which is the best book or resource for understanding reading music for guitar, notes, encryption, times, etc; it would help me a lot, because there are many options but would like to know of a good recommendation to start.

I think this fits in here?

Two things I find difficult with sheet music, turning the page and tempo markings! My metronome has largo-40-60, larghetto-60-66, adagio-66-76, andante-76-108, moderato-108-120, allegro-120-168, presto-168-200, and prestissimo-200-208.
This helps a bit but since I play Spanish music I have to translate from Spanish to Italian to English and it's very confusing. I use the melody as a guide but I want to sound as it was written, can anyone bring light to these questions?

What is tiempo de vals lento (a slow waltz)?
Andante cantabile (a singing andante)?
Tiempo lento de mazurka (?)
