Beyond that, I'm not sure what else to do to help.

I don't think WWWJDIC is going to help him.  I sort of get the impression he can't even read kana...

Whose bright idea was this project, anyway?

Re: japanese words starting with s

With motion verbs as in your first sentence, 公園を散歩します (Kouen wo sanpo shimasu), the "wo" particle marks where the motion occurs (walk around/through the park.)

In your other two sentences, "wo" has its normal function of marking the direct object of the verb:
切手を五枚ください (Kitte wo go mai kudasai) Please give me 5 stamps.
忘れました (Kasa wo wasuremasita) I forgot my umbrella.
