First of all, your build is quite something for a first time try. A few things I would change.
As of immediately, try this instead if you haven't respec'd, it isn't important otherwise. Gift of the Earthmother helps your hot spells, some of your most important spells, come out faster. This will be important.http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0VhZZf0IubuxVuVhst
Your final build contains all of the important Resto talents, and you've placed your final points admirably. I would personally do otherwise, but that is not important.
As for the above hybrid build, I don't suggest it. If I did suggest one, do this. It gives you big crits, insect swarm, and long hots/dots while retaining much of the healing capacity of the resto tree. Past that, everything else becomes standard balance talents, but this will allow your to heal effectively while retaining your ability to solo. You don't have Living Spirit, a core talent, because spirit doesn't do quite as much for you in that state. The progression of the build is 1/1 Tree of Life, 3/3 Living Seed, 3/3 Improved Tree of Life, 3/3 Living Spirit. This does not leave you at a proper Lv80 resto build, but it'll suffice as you level.http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0xGzuV0oZZf0IubuxVzA
As for learning how to heal, do other people a favor. You'll see death knight groups needing healers for outland instances. Go heal for them, starting low, working your way up. Let them know you're learning how to heal, and you'll eventually reach difficult points in your learning, where you'll adapt naturally, learning how to heal from experience rather than a guide.
