I can't get a handle on weight painting. My understanding is that you should be able to set the influence each bone has on different parts of the mesh, but I can't seem to select individual bones for weight painting. I've read that you need to first enter Pose Mode, then select a bone, then switch to Weight Paint mode, but "Weight Painting" no longer appears in my menu options when I'm in Pose Mode.

Weight Paint mode is a mode for objects, not armatures. You need to first select the armature in Object mode, then Shift select the object, switch to Weight Paint mode, and Ctrlleft click to select the bones you want, Shiftleft click to add a bone.
