Need to switch to decaf coffee. Looking for some information.

Due to some recent health issues, my Dr. recommended cutting out caffeine. So I have switched to diet soda's for now (until I can get off soda's completely) and decaf coffee. I have had many cups of decaf over the years, so I don't think this will be a big issue.
Anyway, I was at Starbucks the other night. I enjoy their coffee and asked for a decaf coffee (the regular drip coffee is the ONLY thing I have ever had). The server asked if I wanted a decaf Cafe Americano instead, of which I agreed. I had no idea what it was and I loved it.
I also never had an espresso before and assume that these can be made decaf (much like the Cafe Americano???). I would like to try a decaf espresso if possible.
I did some quick Google searches and now I am even more confused. I thought that espresso was adding hot water to coffee beans. And it appears that Cafe Americano is adding hot water to espresso??
Can someone help clarify in plain English for a total non-coffee connoisseur? I am just looking for decaf suggestions.
