AI am still learning the basics of cakes and would love to hear people's opinions on ganache vs chocolate buttercream for frosting a cake and simple decorations

AFor the filling you can use both. As far as for frosting the cake you will get a smoother surface using ganache. Visit YouTube and watch how to ganache a cake straight sides by inspired by Michelle and there's also a new one from savanna custom cakes. The key to ganache is good quality chocolate. Not store bought.
