It took me about an hour to fix my boxes and embed a working email contact form. After spending an entire day watching the videos on how to do it (getting very bored and dizzy), I must have understood something. That is incredible progress. Thank you for putting up with my long and feeling lost posts. So, now I am going to work on making an automatically loading 4 column page using tags and putting an email form in my sidebar.
The speed of site without extra services (Positive SSL etc) from my host. Or should I move now while I am at the end of my payment period.
Photo loading speed requirements
Making my site easily accessible to the visually impaired.
Again thank you.

Ellen, the payment period shouldn't matter when site speed is concerned. In the first place the SSL cert should be free. You don't need anything other than what is referred to as Domain Validation. If your host doesn't offer a free ssl then you might look at other hosting solutions.
The http/2 protocol that we discussed elsewhere should be automatic once your site is secure.
In terms of image loading requirements, my advice on that has changed for virtually all non-css images. My recommendation is to optimize the size and quality of the image to the maximum width your theme displays an image. So typically, a 1200px wide image is generally large enough for most skins. However, for big displays an full width images you might consider 1920px wide images.
WordPress now automatically sizes images (both featured images and in content images) to match the screen that is viewing the image. Thus WordPress automatically serves a smaller image to a phone than it does to a desktop.
In terms of visual impairment - that subject is worth a Google search and a few hours of reading. Try Googling "Hot to design websites for the visually impaired".
