Where you start I think depends on what previous exposure you've had to programming if any. If nothing else HTML5 is a good place to start, and BlackBerry has gotten particularly good at it recently. Cascades is also great (what I code in lately) but you need to be comfortable with C++ and Qt to take full advantage of it.
You can find good documentation for each of the supported development platforms at developer.blackberry.com. The getting started documentation will take you through the steps of getting the tools installed and even walk you through the creating the typical "Hello World" walk through. Where you go from there depends on what kind of app you want to create. The BlackBerry devblog and development forums are also a great resource for when you run into questions and seeking answers. The BlackBerry github has a ton of useful examples and community contributed code that you can leverage. Hope this helps.

HTML5 is the best language to start developing apps. Just google for: BBUI.js for some examples.

I would not go by that 13 year old. I have looked at most of the apps and they are done by app generator.
HTML5 with BBUI.js would be the best place for you to start

However, web-based apps are better for certain uses like books, newsreaders, interactive catalogues, clocks, guides and tutorials, reference manuals, etc. Yes you can also do games but they will be a bit slow and limited.
If you want to go "hard-core" then you can pick up Marmalade SDK and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express, both free. Marmalade gives a free trial but I think if you submit an app they give you a license. Then follow some excellent tutorials from drmop.com... Modify their code and work on that as a base to develop your game.
I wouldn't suggest Marmalade as a beginner though, it has a fairly tough learning curve, but once you know what you are doing, you can make some slick games (I'm sticking to 2D games for now).

Let Me Google That For You
Please, do not submit an app through that. Ever. I can't believe that I've actually seen apps generated through this on BlackBerry World and they charge money for them.
