About the WiFi.begin() reference:
https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/WiFiBegin

It is unclear for the newbies to tell if this WiFi.begin() command compiles for the arduino uno without any relation to a ESP32 or with/without any relation with any kind of wireless communication.

It is not stated that you need to use a third device like an ESP32, a newbie may think he can connect to the wifi with the arduino uno.

It is also not mentioned that in order to use it for an ESP, you dont need to: #include <WiFi.h>, cause it wont work or it may not work (in my case at least using this library didnt help).
you need a separate library (which you will need to download and install):
#include <ESP8266mDNS.h>

There is a whole ESP8266 Forum for that device.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

It is a page of the reference for the WiFi library of the Arduino WiFi shield

You can't write an Arduino sketch if you didn't learn programming. Not the language, but the concepts of programming - algorithms and data types.
