Do certain dwarves not gain certain attributes? I have a dwarf who is legendary in 3 different skills, but he isn't even "Strong" yet.

I believe the agility, strength and the other one are given randomly once you get enough experience. So you might just be getting really unlucky with your ability levelling.

Probably a newby question here but oh well.
How does one build a tower, to put it?

Like I have a basic square shape set up with gaps in the middle to let caravans and migrants through for now.
On the corners I want to build up a type of tower to hold my barracks, ammo stockpiles, anything that my military needs.
But building a wall is impossible on top of/next to the wall I've already built.
What resource do I need to build vertical?

you need to build stares or a ramp to the upper levels if you use stairs you also need to build a set on the second floor here look at the wiki article  http://dwarffortresswiki.net/index.php/Stairs

That's kind of puzzling the way is shown in the pics...

So if I'm just using the b C combination to build them...
I just need to build stairs, then floor, then a wall on the floor, then a floor on top of that wall? I think...

Or does it not matter if the stairs comes first?

Normally what I do is build an upstairs/downstairs on floor level. Build another one right above it.

Then build (b C f) floors to cover the area inside the tower. Note that you *cannot* build walls on top of floors, so don't build the floors over the entire thing, leave a one square border around the outside for the next level of walls.

Then build the 4 corner walls spaces.

Then build the rest of the walls.

Repeat.

umno. not exactly. you build stairs up, so your dwarves can reach floor two. then you build flooring NEXT to the wall-space, and then you build a wall on top of the first wall (walls automatically make "floors" on top of themselves. You can build on this "floor", you cannot build on top of constructed floors)

Toady typically doesn't do things by half measures.  As evidenced by turning "make hauling work better" into "implement mine carts with physics".
There are many issues with this statement.

Ok, I figured out building with materials...
It's just like digging pretty much...
Fancy that...

Oh wow
It seems I was accidentally hilarious or something?
Okay, yeah, I actually meant that as honest advice.
See, I haven't played DF in a while, and I thought walls weren't constructed with floors automatically on top, so I thought that building a floor on top of the wall would let someone build another wall on top of the floor.
Oh well.
