This is a pretty good summary! One nitpick, though--male users of 僕 are usually not "girly." They just tend to be less hypermasculine than users of 俺. 僕 is still a pretty masculine personal pronoun.

comment What should I look for in a dictionary to help me study?
Oh, those. But those are Japanese->Japanese and Japanese->English dictionaries, which IMO are not all that useful for beginning Japanese student because you have to know Japanese pretty well to use them--though they can be very useful for more advanced students.

I understand EDICT's limitations, but I've never encountered a free online E-J dictionary with complete definitions and usage notes like you're describing. Perhaps things have changed since I last looked. Link?

comment What should I look for in a dictionary to help me study?
I consider it the best because it is the most usable. A beginner might want a simple, easy-to-use dictionary more than one with listings for every word, no matter how obscure. You make good points, though. It definitely depends on an individual learner's priorities.

comment What does -komu (ー込む) at the end of a word mean?
Basically, yes. 込む's meaning has expanded from its basic definition of "to be packed" to "to put into (i.e. to make packed)" and from there to "to do intensely (i.e. to put a lot of energy into)"
