    how do you make a junction on a breadboard (ie when two wires branch off of one on a diagram? Is it enough to stick two wires into the breadboard row and not really care what order they are in?

    Yes, almost always.

    Probably always, but as sure as I say, "always" somebody will think of an exception.

    What type of bread board???

    If you mean a proto board type then:

    Rows are connected together. Columns are not. Try it with your ohmmeter and see.

    Depending on the size of wire, you might ruin your breadboard if you try jamming two wires into the same hole. It might actually be extremely difficult.

    If you mean a perf board type then:

    Yes two wires in the same hole will do it.

    Fundamentally at lower frequencies (<MHz), length of connections to nodes is irrelevant. grab a meter and verify a short between the points to verify they're on the same 'node'
