Asking how to create programs is like asking how to create paintings - it is a hard process that'll take a lot of time and effort and cannot be taught reliably by other people.
The best way to start would be to think of a single, simple, task that you'd like to accomplish. Then break that down into simple steps and consider how you'd automate them.
If you can do that then several languages (which you don't even touch upon) could be used - especailly the scripted languages such as perl, python, or ruby. They're interactive enough that they'll not distract you too much from actually accomplishing your task.
As soon as you start talking about "buttons" you up the ante into graphical programming. Things like VB aren't available except on Windows..
Interesting, I didn't know of that. Are there any bug reports about the problem? If not I'd suggest submitting one.
