Based on what you described, you shouldn't need to do a branch.  Just fix
the bug in the appropriate file(s), then re-commit those (files).

I agree with your assessment of available FAQs.  Most online docs are either
technical references, with little explanation of integration into daily
practices, or too technically advanced for beginners.

To remedy that situation for my own in-house development team, I've started
a FAQ of my own.  It's not yet ready for prime-time (the section on branches
is notably empty), but I add a bit to it each week.  You may find it a
useful starting point for your learning.
