What is the purpose of the segments and rings? How do we decide when to use more of them and when not? I take it that this actual place of existence (3d view)has no ground? therefore if we're creating everything for an animation in blender are we supposed to create the terrain as well or will it automatically add some straight terrain? (now I don't know how that process works but all in all I'm curious if we should make the ground or if it exists but is invisible so to say)

    Segments and Rings just enable you to customize the resulting object to better fit your needs. It's entirely dependent on what you need the mesh to do. As for terrain, the grid floor is typically considered to be equivalent to a ground floor. This is a good practice.
