Ok, what are they?
They are text files.
What are they for?
They change the way textures are displayed.
How do you make one?
Notepad is a good option.
How do you use one?
You direct the shader to the texture you want, then put the shader in the shaders folder. This makes more sense when you understand how shaders work, which takes some practice.
Will they help with light-emitting textures?
They don't help with light-emitting textures, they create light emitting textures.

Now I gather you're going to have some more specific questions, now that I answered the basics, so fire away.
