If you know HTML/CSS, you can modify the design. You need to learn XML too, but it will be easy if you know HTML. The Designer’s Guide is a good introduction to designs in Magento.

To modify the functionality of Magento, you need to know about PHP and object oriented programming.

The Core API is not for modifying code, it is for creating, reading, updating and deleting products, customers etc. from other applications.
