It is most likely "(get width of (Lives: & Lives as text) using HUD font) - 10". For the y value, try 10.

That would make the lives and the timer on opposite sides of the screen.

I haven't done any tutorials or read books, so I cannot be sure. What you have in the screenshots looks "right" to me.

If it doesn't come out correctly. Try switching the -10 to +10.

If you don't know where to find a specific block, search it :)
  at the top of the "Palette" .. here the word "width" gives 2  good candidates .. "get width for text using ...."
 and if you want to know where they come from in the Palette, right click .. you can even see their codes

These are all problems that the author of the book should address. As far as I know, Stencyl itself did not write it. I had never even heard of the book before you asked the first question yesterday. I think you should find the author(s) and contact them directly.

The color block is in drawing > style.

She talking about the book that Innes wrote.  OP, so you know, he is a member of his community and the book even has a whole message board about it:
http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/board,110.0.html
If you feel that the book is not clear, perhaps post there to express your problem.
