I also need to know how to speed up a clip.
This is very very basic stuff.
Might want to get yourself a subscription a Lynda.com or
Selecting a clip is by mouse clicking and drag from Source Monitor to timeline (if that is what you mean)
Speeding up is by right click on clip: Speed/Duration.

Do yourself a favour and stick to Filmora for the time being and get to know Premiere before starting a project.
Premiere has a very high learning curve.
You are going about this all the wrong way.
Double click on clip in Project window
opens in Source Monitor
Set in and out points
Drag clip to timeline.
