Ok so I am not so technically backward or a moron.. but having serious issues... pls help!
1) Why cant i see messages and notifications on my handheld on the FB app site?
2) Is the only way to get messages is to change notifications in my FB account to receive emails. to my hotmail inbox? then I get the FB messages in 3 places and its really inundating esp since my emails are not sycnhing either with handheld... do I have to have extra notifications to receive FB msgs.. I thought you can go to FB site and see new msgs/notifs
Does it matter how I set up the app (on handheld vs downloading on desktop?)

here is the regular setup for facebook notifications, when you use a computer and a BlackBerry device.
one event is sent out to:
for the first item, it's straightforward.
for the second item, this is how it works:
in the end, you have the event notification both on Facebook (the website that you browse with your device) and on Facebook for BlackBerry.
Now that being said, I do not know if viewing a given notification will mark it as read on the other side.

great thanks.. I have done all of the above.. somehow, i get all the notifications to my email adderss on my PC as well and was trying to avoid that from happening, so it only comes through on my handheld... but doesnt look like thats possible?

the facebook notifications have to be sent to an email address. You can either configure your BlackBerry device to activate deleted reconciliation from Handheld to server, or you can create an automatic rule on your PC mail user agent to delete the facebook notifications. This is done in 3 minutes if you use Mozilla Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook
