I haven't used openSUSE in a while, so I can't really help here. If you still want to try it, my recommendation would be to download an openSUSE LiveCD image, burn it to a CD, and try out the OS. This can also be used to test if all the hardware is compatible with the OS.
Would you recommend opensuse to a new user?
I've read that Linux Mint or PCLinuxOS are good for new Linux users.
What other distros are newbie friendly?
OpenOffice.org is pretty standard for Linux distros. It handles most, if not all, MS Office documents.
Are there any difficulties in opening/creating/modifing word documents, excel, etc?
Linux is often used to recover data from damaged systems or fix an unbootable OS.
I heard somewhere that linux software can work with a lightly damaged but more or less functional hardware, is this true?
