I'm not sure how best to advise you on scroll type borders since it's hard for me to understand what you're referring to without seeing an example, but I can give you advice on text and search engine optimization (how easily google and other websites can find your site).
Have you searched for a free font you could use that has squiggly lines incorporated into the font? Fonts are the style that text is displayed it. Some examples of fonts you might know are Times New Roman and Comic Sans. From the standpoint of a professional designer, I'd recommend that you find a more unique font to use for your logo than those examples. I'm not sure what you're looking for when it comes to squiggly lines, but it sounds like a font with squiggles would work for you from what I could understand. If you decide to download a font to use for a commercial purpose, make sure the font is free to use. Some fonts have licensing restrictions and you would need to pay to use them. You would need to download a font and install it onto your computer in order to use it.
You can find fonts to download at http://www.fontspace.com/ and other websites.
One more thing you should know about fonts, especially when doing web design is that there are only a few fonts that are web safe. A web safe font is a font that is installed on all or nearly all computers. When viewing a website, your browser will only be able to display fonts that are installed on your computer unless the text is an image instead of actual type on the page. Since not all fonts are installed by default on all computers, not every font can be displayed on every computer. If you want to use a fancy font for part of your website, you could either A) use an image or B) code your website in html5 and css3. html5 and css3 are new web standards still in development that are not widely supported on all browsers and might not be covered in your coding book. Css3 allows the coder to embed a font into the website. Only use this technique if the font you're using is freeware with no licensing restrictions or you will run into legal issues. This method is much more complicated than displaying the font as an image. This technique is not easy for a beginner unless you're very good at picking up code methods quickly. There is a book by Sitepoint on html5 and css3 that goes into this technique in more detail.
One more thing you should know about text on a website is that search engines cannot read images. They can only read text. This means that if you display a word as an image instead of actual text in the code, search engines will not pick up that word as a keyword. For this reason, it's advisable not to display ALL your text on the site as an image unless you don't mind the fact that your website will be difficult to find on a search engine. If you want good search engine optimization, use an H1 tag for the heading of a page if the heading is important to the content. There are 6 types of H tags. H1 will display text in the largest size, H2 in the second largest, and so on. H1 also has the most impact on a search engine. H1 tags will be noticed first and given higher priority by search engines than H2 tags. H2 tags will be given more attention than H3 tags and so on. You can change the size and appearance of various H tags with css. Don't put all of the text in your website in H1 tags. Just use regular paragraph tags for content that is not a heading or important intro on the first line of text.
