Arduino Motor shield questions?

I have down loaded the Wicked_Stepper motor library and installed it. I have loaded the example of code to confirm that it works with my stepper motor. I have installed a second stepper motor and it rotates at the same rate as the other and the same direction. I have almost Zero coding experience but a lot of tenacity. After numerous attemps to get the steppers to operate in different directions and speeds I have come up with some questions.
Question #1) Does the Wicked Shield use the same commands as the Arduino?
#2) If it requires different coding and or words where can I find reference to these
#3) What all needs to be instructed in the (setup) portion of the code and can any of
that be changed further into the program (loop).
#4) Is there a complete list of the command words and syntax for the Arduino and
Wicked Shield
Insight into any of these questions would be greatly appreciated. Also if I am asking these questions without proper focus please let me know what I actually be looking at! Thanks all in advance for your assistance!

Does the Wicked Shield use the same commands as the Arduino?

It’s doubtful that the library is compatible with any other product on the market as it is a unique design using hardware that is distinct from that used on any official Arduino Shield that I am aware of.

If it requires different coding and or words where can I find reference to these

WickedMotorShield library is designed specifically for use with the Wicked Motor Shield product. Assuming that is the product you are using, there’s a bunch of documentation available by way of that link under the heading Documentation. I would start with the User’s Guide and then take a look at the examples in the library.

What all needs to be instructed in the (setup) portion of the code and can any of
that be changed further into the program (loop).

The examples in the Library should give you a very good idea about how this works.

Not really, again look at the examples and dig into the c++ library files on Github.
