To add to the deluge of information you're receiving at the moment :), 
the answer to this specific question is that these commands tell LaTeX 
to use these families...and the families themselves are defined in 
their .fd file. For example, t1pad.fd will begin with a definition of 
the family name, then go through and add bold, italic, small caps, and 
so on so that the various \bfseries, \itshape commands etc. work as 
expected in LaTeX.

I believe that fontinst takes care of this for you, so you -shouldn't- 
need to worry about the specifics at this stage...
