What do I need to learn to make mods for Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition?

Searching "Baldur's Gate Enhanced mods" only brings up install guides, downloads and lists of available mods. What I'm looking for are tutorials and guides how to make mods myself.
I have some background in game design, but only 3D models and such, nothing on the coding front. So far, I also only made campaigns or maps in games that came with an editor.
Where do I find tutorials for making mods/campaigns?
Can I use resources that were written for the original game? I see some old mods were made compatible with BGEE, but not all.
Is it realistic to think I can make simple mods* any time soon (few months) if I start completely from scratch? I'm ok with learning to code if that's required, and if I know what language.
*simple mods would include dialogues between existing NPCs (i.e. banter between party members where players only click "continue" and "end") as a start and adding new companion NPCs with own quests/maps as the end of the learning curve.
