The SDK is the developer's kit that you can download from Google. It contains a number of tools for use in developing applications for the platform, among them an emulator (for testing apps as if you're on a real android phone) and the ADB tool for accessing the hardware over a USB connection.

The ADB tool is run on the command line (no graphical interface). That's usually a bash prompt found in any console/konsole/terminal in Linux or by running cmd.exe in Windows. It allows the user to execute standard linux shell commands on the phone's filesystem.

C:/>adb shell ls
For example, the above command runs adb, tells it to issue the "ls" shell command, which gives a directory file listing (similar to the "dir" command in DOS.

Anything beyond that is above my head as of yet, since I don't have any Android hardware to use the tools on.
