Beginner help for DX6 & Heli-X

I don't know anyone that does RC and have just got into myself very recently. I am a computer game programmer with a Mathematics and Computer Science degree. In other words, I am not quite as stupid as I will probably sound in this post

I first got a Syma 111G and then a Syma X1. Of course they just worked and they were a blast! Naturally I wanted more so I ordered a Spektrum DX6 (2014) and a Blade Nano QX BNF. OK, Wow! Now I am lost! I have no idea how to program the DX6 to fly my Nano. I found a file online that I will try to import.

I know I have to put my time in, I understand that. I thought it would be useful to try a flight simulator so I did some research and decided to try Heli-X. I downloaded that and SmartPropoPlus and apparently have it talking successfully to my DX6. But when I start Heli-X, I am doomed right at the controller configuration. I don't know what Collective Pitch is, or Cyclic Roll and Cyclic Nick. I am guessing Rudder would be ZRotation but I don't know which of the other function should be mapped to which axis.

Can anyone point me to a guide so that I can at least get my controller configured? About the most I know of terminology so far is that I have been favoring Mode 2 just because it makes sense to me for quadcopters.

Thank you!

P.S. Here are the final lines from the Heli-X console window:

I think you are going to have a hard time finding someone with that sim and a DX6. You might have better luck here:
