What is the best way to start learning liggghts as there are a lot of commands in the input script, so can you give some tips as to how to begin learning?

I would suggest starting with very simple examples and look up every command in the online manual.
You can start with the three tutorials:
#1 https://www.cfdem.com/forums/tutorial-1-bouncing-ball
#2 https://github.com/CFDEMproject/LIGGGHTS-PUBLIC/tree/master/examples/LIG...
#3 https://www.cfdem.com/forums/tutorial-3-dem-flow
that's what I teach my students first.
Have fun, Christian.

How would I go about extracting data from the simulation to plot height/velocity etc...? I'm using paraview for post processing.
