You probably want to use all of them at various points. The environment light makes light come from the skybox. Point lights give off light equally in all directions (think of them radiating from a sphere that has zero radius). There's one more, I can't remember what it is...

There are also texture lights. There should be a file called lights.rad in the folder your tools are. A texture that is listed there would produce light. They look a bit better than entity lights. But it really depends on what you are doing.

Here are some good light tutorials.

In their properties you can set the color and brightness. And yes, after you make changes in your map you need to recompile.

In the entity go to brightness. There are four numbers. The first three are the color and the last one is the brightness.

It really is better to use more lights for more even lighting.
