Lighting Career- HELP!

I need anwsers. I have been restlessly trying to figure out what is required in this field at a professional level. I have gathered a good amount of information but I still have a couple of probably silly questions.

First off, what is shading? Is this any different than texturing?Is there a different between a Lighting TD, and and just a Lighter? (Laugh) Is there even a difference?

Secondly, is it a requirement to be able to understand and write scripts? Or write lighting equations? It seems like lighting has a lot of math involved, in this the case?

Third, do all of you guys know how to model and texture as well? Is that just part of what it takes to do lighting?

To sum it up, at a professional level, what are the skills that Lighting people need to know?If you guys have any links to articles that could clear my head on this, that would also be super helpful.
