you can find a handy guide on installing java here:
and a guide on installing flashplayer here:

I have never used second life myself so i can't comment on how to install it but this forum thread may help:

i am not sure what you mean by the third question. you can enable visual desktop effects by going to system -> preferences -> appearance and enabling it there

Can you help with this problem?
