PerlMonks is a pretty good place to get a start with Perl. See Tutorials to start dipping your toe in, especially the Getting Started with Perl section. Posting questions here when you stumble or are curious will generally get pretty quick answers.
That said, there is a pretty large learning curve from start to writing a website regardless of what language and tools you use, especially if you have no or little previous programming experience. I find things I have little experience with always seem much easier than they are in practice and the better something is done the simpler it seems and the harder it was to do!
