Default Intro and help getting started

I'm not a stranger to electronics and work in the server/IT/hosting arena but feeling very lost with trying learn about and navigate the vague tutorials and descriptions of exactly what DIS, ADS and INPA/EDIABAS are as well as the required hardware to get them to work.

I have five US-spec e36 vehicles, all with production dates between August and December of 1996.

I am looking to do everything from simple SRS/Airbag light resets to editing and modifying values in the DME so as to enable more features and/or tweak existing values so as to eliminate CEL issues.

Information is not very specific on the net. I am confused as to whether or not I need DISv44 or v57, as well as confused about the differences in various ADS interfaces (20-pin connectors).

Thanks for any help. Located on East Coast of USA.
