Ive looked through the evemon trade skills, but am still uncertain as the descriptions are a bit confusing to a n00b like me. What skills will I need to train up to be able sell my ore to people far away? The prices for my minerals is meh in the location im at, but I see buy orders that are pretty high, but are like 25 jumps away, and flying a hauler full of minerals 25 jumps through 0.0 space is about the dumbest thing anyone could try. Thanks in advance.

None.
You can't influence who you sell to.
You always sell to the highest buy order in range.
If nobody placed a buy order with a range big enough to cover the location your ore is in, you can't insta-sell it at all.
You can only place a sell order and expect somebody to buy it manually later.

You only have three options:
a) fly 25j with a hauler
b) pay somebody else to move your stuff 25j (courier contract, for instance)
c) put a sell order for your stuff and hope somebody wants to buy it where it is now


Goods NEVER move alone.
Some player has to actually move them around.
