Not sure if this is the right place but here goes...
I am a NOOB and would like to know if GLCD with KS0713 is best addressed serial or parallel? I have PicBasic Pro, can I write simple programs to PICs using this? What are V1, V2, V3,and V4 for on the chip?
Serial or Parallel?

No, but I moved it here :)

Serial gives you less pins, but you give up reading.

Running a graphic LCD is usually not "simple".

V1-V4 are the voltages used for the different waveforms that drive the LCD.

Please take a look at our demo board schematics for sample connections:

Or the controller data sheet:
