RE: Japanese Maple Bonsai HELP!....please :)

I would recommend doing as much research as possible. You can look up some info through bonsai websites or simply googling info. You local library can be a excellent source of books to get some great info, that's how I learned most of my fundamentals and guidelines as a beginner.
