Reverse engineering of file/archive formats requires skills and experience.
You can find some generic information and tutorials in the Tutorials section:
viewforum.php?f=4

If you have never used a hex editor, never programmed, never used the command-line, don't know what are bits, byte, strings, endianess, zlib and so on... you are very very very far from anything.

QuickBMS and any programming language are totally USELESS if you are unable to retrieve information about the structure of a format.
Reverse engineering is 90% of the work, programming/quickbms is the rest.

The good news is that there are so many quickbms scripts and sample files available that for sure there is lot of stuff for practice.
Tip for quickbms: the -V option is the most important feature for both reversing and scripting, together with the hex editor it makes the two works (RE/programming) just one unique thing.

I started more than 15 years ago in various different fields so I'm not a good example and I'm absolutely not good at giving advices about where starting.
What's your current knowledge? (yeah it's a generic question that means nothing, I know)
Do you know a programming language?

Check these links:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=72
http://www.vg-resource.com/thread-28180.html
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysh35jP ... GrVNJ2kS2f (use ever QuickBMS, do NOT use multiex)

This is useful for having a sample and the relative script to compare and study:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=34

Spend one month on them and then, maybe, you can return on this topic.

P.S.: do NOT open new topics about the same things.
