Then explain in proper english, in an organized way what you got, where you got it and how you want it. What doesnt work? What setup do you have? What setup do you want? Give a good explenation

This is an easy fix, you could have had it running already. If you want your permalinks to get working in nginx add the following to your vhost:

# Permalinks

if (!-e $request_filename) {
  rewrite ^.*$ /index.php last;

This should work for your permalinks, once done restart nginx. I don’t understand from your post what other problems you have so if you got more problems, please give some explanation.
