I am totally green about asking the proper question so here's what I'm
researching...

I'm a decently adept web designer who specializes in WordPress. I would
like to pursue some larger clients and offer to move their sites to the
cloud (as well as perform their makeovers, of course) but in a couple of
cases, the organizations have multiple branches, each with their own
website, and it seems to make sense to use Multisite instead of individual
websites. That said, I've never used Multisite so my concern is how does
it work to create multiple websites+database for a single client...on the
cloud?
If you have a little experience with the command prompt or a terminal it's
fairly easy to create multiple sites and even services using Cloud
Foundry. This document gives you a quick overview of the cf cli.

The main task to run your application on CF is called "cf push". You can
see more about that here.

http://docs.cloudfoundry.org/devguide/installcf/whats-new-v6.html#push

And there's a walkthrough of deploying an app here.

In regards to databases, you can also create those with the cf client.
This document has some instructions on that.

Since you mentioned Wordpress, you might find this blog post useful. It
walks through running Wordpress on CF.

I suspect I should be asking more but since I don't entirely understand
what the setup should be I'll start with a simple initial question. I'd
LOVE to hear some insight into how to setup these kind of clients.

Please be gentle with me, I bruise easy. Simple explanations get more
mileage with me. Thank you kindly in advance!!
The best thing would be to sign up for an account with a public CF provider
(PWS, Bluemix, AnyNines, etc...). It's pretty easy and most offer free
trials. That would allow you to play around with deploying an app or two
to CF and get used to the cf client.

Hope that helps!
