comment Reading lines from a file with bash: for vs. while
The read command is part of the shell bash, so it's in the man page of bash in section "SHELL BUILTIN COMMANDS" in the read paragraph. You will find "-u fd Read input from file descriptor fd." in this paragraph

comment How do you format a USB stick after it is being labled “unrecognised” by Ubuntu?
The "dd" command do not format any partition. It simply write blocks from/to devices. Your command just write zeros to the device of your usb stick partition. This is a easy way to cleanup the whole partition from old datafragments. But it is no formatting.

comment Mount a Windows network drive
Some more information about "do not work" (error messages, etc) will help. On older systems the old smb mount is the default. On newer systems actual mount.cifs ist standard. You can check that with 'mount-cifs -V`.

comment Mount a Windows network drive
If you use ls -a you should see the file. Because the filename starts with a dot it's hidden. Ich you user cat /root/.cifscredentials you will see the content of the file.
