Sounds like the answers you are looking for will be found as you explore the site, so please explore! Words and phrases aren't good to learn by themselves unless you use them a lot. It's better to start off simple and go from there.

As for vowel intonations and things, I think you have the right idea... sort of. You'll feel it out as you practice practice practice.

"What is your name?"

"My name is...."

I think that you have the right idea for the name thing, too.
