You're about to learn a lot- enjoy!
Ann Reardon- She's made just about the most useful video I've ever seen about how to make chocolate- she covers bean to bar, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and even compares a few different types of chocolate she's made.
A key technique Ann uses that I need to try is to melt the cocoa butter, take it off the boiler, then
Ann also beautifully explains tempering- what it is, and why it matters, or doesn't to most chocolate lovers. I've watched this video many times, I think you will too:

Todd's Kitchen- Todd is a real chocolate lover and deconstructs how to make dark, milk, and white chocolate (among many other delicious treats) on his very popular YouTube and Facebook channels.
Todd uses a double boiler technique, which works for a lot of people, but I don't think is necessary. All of his videos on chocolate are a must-see!
