Yes, Ive also found it difficult to find beginner information on picking either a stepper motor compared to brushless motors, or other options, and the differences in how to control the different choices in labView. If anyone can point me in the right direction of some reading material or any kind of guide or pertinent information anywhere that might be of any help, Id be very appreciative!
There is a selection guide for motors on our website which can be found here: http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/12594
There is also software specifically for LabVIEW to control motors. You can find it here: http://sine.ni.com/nips/cds/view/p/lang/en/nid/13851
