Put everything in a canvas.

Just set the selectedIndex however seems appropriate.
But that won't give him a window over the app. A popup TitleWindow will give this.
I agree. You need the popup manager.
And a TitleWindow is the easiest way to go due to a wealth of examples.
But I suggest you use the module manager in conjunction with the popup manager and move the Help files to a separate .swf.
