Well, these two works take a lot of coding work, I don't think that someone with no experience in coding would churn out something like this on their first try. Perhaps it will be easier to first start on something small and slowly work your way up to that point. Start playing around with the beginner guide articles first and try to follow their instructions. If you're still stuck, specify what it is you don't understand. I'm sure a lot of people will be able to help you out.
If the guides haven't been any help, I'm not sure what people in the forum will be able to do about it, we can't learn coding on your behalf. There's no easy way to get the hang of coding on this site; you're just going to have to knuckle down, read and re-read the articles, and mess around with the advanced editor until you're comfortable enough with variables to do what you need to do. I strongly suggest taking a trial-and-error approach to learning the editor; practice coding into a test game as you read the articles to get a hang of the techniques they're suggesting. And make sure you read the articles in order of difficulty; they're posted alphabetically so that might be tripping you up.
