Biceps = curls-: -with back against a wall or use a machine that isolates biceps. Tri, yes weights on a machine elbow @90 pull down & spread @the end. You have to find your own weight to start. Free weights are good but the technique is different, & hard to explain,best to be shown by an AT-C.

Chin ups, push ups: For true isolation of the bicep or triceps I would do isolated bicep curls on and incline bench or curl machine. As for the triceps french presses (skull crushers) and tricep press downs work great. Now if you truly wish to work things out better I would do chin ups and push ups (close grip if you really want to target the tricep.

How soon can you eat after working out?

Suggest 1-2 hours: Drink as much as u feel like, but if it's a good 45 minute workout, would wait 1-2 hrs. Also wouldn't work out within 1-2 of sleeping. The 'work' of digestion causes a major shift of your blood from your skeletal muscle (biceps, quads etc) to your visceral muscles (gut etc). Therefore, would also not exercise till 1-2 hrs after eating.

Trip to the Doctor: Shoewear is not just a fashion statement. Protect your toes from fractures or dislocations, support your arch, and pad your heel. 80% of foot problems that present to my office could be prevented by a comfortable pair of supportive shoes worn most of the time.
