Leaders, Tippets, & Tapor?

Hi,
I am just starting to explore the worl of fly fishing. I have a question. Can you use regular fishing line on a fly reel? Does it work rght? Are you supposed to? Also for fly fishing, do you use a leader like you would for regular fishing? I mean are you supposed to put stronger line at the end of the line? Can you use steel leaders in fly fishing? And why is the leader, tippets, and Tapor so expensive? What is Tippets and Tapor and what do they do? PLease, someone teach me this stuff. I am very curious to know all of this stuff. Thanks

-Sean
