    how can you have text on a page, not a post and have a few lines then 'read more' link for people to follow reading on another page. I know, it's easy to set it up on a post but I don't know how to do it on a page or even if it's doable. any assistance with this will be highly appreciated. thanks.

    An "insert more" tag can be achieved by writing your text into the visual-tab of the editor and by pressing the ALT+SHIFT+T keys on your keyboard . Just locate/click on the part of your post/page where it should be split-ed and use the aforementioned key-combination .

    thank you for your contribution. I was way off thinking that you would need php scripting to achieve that. now I still got one question: what is the 'visual tab'? thanks again.

    No , you don't have to know/write PHP-code for writing post/page content on WordPress . Access the administration panel of your WordPress installation and select Posts -> Add-new , this will display your editor .The editor has two "modes" (HTML and Visual) . Visual-mode is like editing an Ms-word document while HTML-mode allows you to format/style your text with HTML-tags .
