The point of displaying an author name is to differentiate the posts on an multi-author site. Regardless of the theme, and provided the theme is designed to display a byline, bylines will only display now if there are at least two official authors who both have at least one published post in the blog.

via How can I show author name??? « WordPress.com Forums.
I have found the section in my stylesheet that controls this (the single-author byline), which was set to “display: none.” When I remove that line, I am able to get the “Posted by…” to show up, but the remainder of the line shows up in html code rather than just displaying my name

Categories are similar to, but broader than, tags. For more information on the differences between categories and tags please check out this support doc.

The regular top menu of a theme automatically displays links to
– all your publicly published parent pages, [*]
– in alphabetical order (unless you assign order numbers),
– with dropdowns to child pages in some themes only,
– and nothing other than that (except a built-in Home link in some themes).
The names of the links will be the actual page titles, and each link will bring up the page in the same browser window or tab (replacing the page you were on).
[*] A few themes display links to parent pages and/or post categories.
A custom top menu replaces the regular one and displays what you tell it to display; it allows you to:
❇ Change the page order more easily.
❇ Display links to some instead of all your parent pages.
❇ Give the links names other than the actual page titles.
❇ Create submenus (dropdowns) without having to turn your pages into child pages.
❇ Create submenus if the regular menu of the theme doesn’t support them.
