Sounds like it's one of the cameras with Av mode, which should be pretty easy to use

Could be the K2

Many Pentax models display shutter speed in the viewfinder.
It is not however a requirement for film photography.

I recommend the book Black and White Photography: A Basic Manual by Henry Horenstein.
It is an excellent introduction to the principles of film photography.
