Finding seeds-newbie ???

Hi Everyone,
I have so many questions , I hope somebody will take pity on a newbie and answer them for me.
A lot of my plant are starting to turn brown and I think I can collect seeds from them. My problem on some is I don't know what is a seed or where are the seeds.
Also should I deadhead these and wait for a while to collect the seeds.
The plants in question( at least right now) are hollyhocks, sweet william, dianthus, blanket flower "fanfare",balloon flower, and columbine.
My foxgolove is done blooming and there is just a green stock left. Is there seeds on there somewhere?
Is there a site to go to to find this stuff out?

Thanks and Best Wishes,
Sue in Upper Michigan
