Your project seems to be very interesting but I think you have to read a lot of documentation before start it, like in every other project, so I will recommend you some docs/sites to start.
1. First, for start on Python I recommend you the official site where are documentation and forums to share your ideas and get suggestions: Python Official Site. The advantage is that you can find many other sites about Python easily because many users love programming on Python.
2. About Bash scripting I will recommend you this document: Bash Guide for Beginners. It is a guide for beginners where you can find all the bases to start doing interesting things. Again, the advantage here is that you can find a lot of documentation about Bash because it is open source.
3. Now, you have to read and research about the USB protocol and master/slave devices. It will help you to understand better how to do your project. Don't worry if you can't understand everything, you only need to have a basic idea on how the protocol works.
4. Finally, in the Arduino Software IDE 1.5.3 there is a couple examples about USB so I recommend you to try them to start using the Galileo Board. If you don't have the IDE yet you can download it from here: Software Downloads. Also I encourage you to navigate in the community to find more information, there are users who did projects with USB devices so you might find something useful for you.
I hope these suggestions be helpful for you to start the project. Have a nice day and remember to share your results with the community!
