For putting down copper shapes you need some advice from someone who uses the same CAD package as you do for layout. I use Cadstar, so I cant comment on how Eagle works. But in Cadstar you add a template (a closed polygon) and pour copper into the template. You set up any thermal relief, spke width, sliver width etc as part of the template properties, allowing for differing properties for different copper shapes.

Just out of interest what sort of copper shapes do you want to put down and for waht.
And secondly if you wanna learn PCB design here is a link to an tool that all PCB designers I know have on their desktop.
http://www.saturnpcb.com/pcb_toolkit.htm

Post #43 has a text file with numerous PCB designrelated links.
I2S and digital signal path - in-line resistors?

An electronic design forum with a good section on PCB design and a lot of Eagle information:
http://www.edaboard.com/

Any questions on PCB design, manufacture or assembly just as ask, general ones I should be able to answer, and there are plent of eagle users who can answer eagle specific.

There's a plugin available on the Eagle site called Drillaid, (or something very similar), that creates a separate layer with all the holes shrunk to a user defined size to assist home drilling.
