What I am looking for is something equivalent to "device manager" in Windows. Do I have to go to terminal to find it; if so, what do I type in?

If you are using Ubuntu, do the following:

sudo apt-get --yes -q install gnome-device-manager
sudo apt-get --yes -q install hardinfo

Those two programs will give you exactly what you're looking for. They also have a GUI front-end to them as well.
