I'm just curious as to exactly what Wicca is. Is it a religion? If so, what or whom do you worship? Is there really such a thing as magic, or is it folklore. Or is it a type of healing? Using herbs and such? If yoou tell the future, can I ask for my future reading? Really want to know.

Wicca is a craft and a religion. It is designed to put a person in harmony with not only Mother Nature, but the entire universe as well. The craft is basically using "supernatural" means to acheive practical goals "for the good of all".
I have found that most Wiccans do not worship one specific god or goddess. Everyone makes their own choice. There is no real wrong or right to it, for the most part. It is based on the individual's preferences.
Magick (spelled with a 'k' to separated it from slight of hand card tricks and such) does exist, everywhere. It is what you make of it. If you think about it, there is a little magick in everything that you see and touch and smell. Magick is used for the good of all, NEVER EVER for harm or revenge. This is the most basic of Wiccan rules. It is used to heal, among other things.
There are a variety of tools used when performing a spell or ritual. Sometimes we use herbs, sometimes not. That really depends on the purpose and type of spell.
As for telling the future, it can be done. Whether it be using tarot cards, a crystal ball (yes, some people can actually "read" a crystal ball), meditation, or any number of other means. There is a slight problem, because as human beings, we can sometimes misconstrue or misread what the "spirits" are telling us. It is usually not 100% correct.
I hope this helps you out. I can always elaborate any of my statements if you would like further information.
