Your best resource is the DBI module. With it, you can do SQL queries at your current level of understanding and do the rest in Perl. As your knowledge of SQL gets more sophisticated, you can upgrade your code to take advantage of the database engine capabilities.

I've always found it easier to learn by example too. MySQL Cookbook may be the middle ground you seek.
