Start at the dummies guide for installing CM10.1/CM10.2 linked in my signature.

If you want CM11, that is the one to use. If you want CM10.1/CM10.2, use the guide I referenced. They use different tools.

Advice please :)
kk so last night i had a go at the kit kat tutorial.

Think I got the right files in the end. (see attachment photo)

Managed to get CWM flashed on the 32gb micro SD and insert it into the Nook and reboot it into recovery.

Then i needed to back up stock OS to SD but it goes through the process but at the end it says no EXT SD found.

So it has the back-up on the internal memory which i cannot get off.

Why did it not back up to EXT SD?

That EXT SD it says it cannot find is not the external SD you are thinking of. It is looking for an old scheme not used anymore where apps sometimes were stored in an extra partition named that on the external SD. Your backup was probably stored on the external SD. It depends on which option you chose when you made it. If you chose the wrong option it might be stored on the internal memory. In any case it is easy to get it off.
