These two links are a great start - but you will have a bit more to read about, such as soils, repotting, etc... There's plenty there at evergreen, just change the link's end to /articles.htm (instead of /pruning.htm)
IMO, its better to *not* prune until you have an idea of what's up, than to start hacking away... nothing to fear though with ficus. Pretty straightforward...
