Adding custom maps in Javascript

Hello all,

I'm trying to create an embedded map using Javascript from my contents on ArcGIS Online. I'm a complete beginner in Javascript. The tutorials online give me some idea of the basic structure of Javascript and dijits, but I still don't know how to reference MY custom maps in the code. Is there a URL I need to insert? Maybe a file location or type I need to add? Is there a program that I need?

Could someone explain this as though I stepped out of a time machine from the early 90's?
