So, I want to learn Linux system administration via using the CLI, would the best way to get started just be downloading VirtualBox and getting say CentOS and running it as a VM and playing around with it?

That's a good start, yeah. Also, if you're just learning Linux, check out "Linux Complete"... it's a thick book full of all kinds of useful info.

Looks fine to me. Also; make the most of man pages. Google 'man' pages, and frequently use the man command in linux. Oh, and adding --help when running a program displays some kind of help, most of the time.
