If Winrar says the .iso file is unknown format or damaged when trying to extract then you've downloaded maybe a bad rip or you've not completed the download properly.
Just checked on one of my downloads which is at 41.5% completion and it gives me the exact same message as you.
I suggest restarting the download.
It could be you are trying to open the .iso file itself which will not work because Wii isos are not generally understandable to windows.
In which case just drag the file out of the Winrar window onto your desktop, once complete you can burn with ImgBurn on Verbatim DVD-R at 4x speed.

Depends where you live, different versions are released in different countries. Multi5 or Multi3 usually are European versions (PAL) with English, Spanish, Italian, german and so on. USA verisons are NTSC and Japanese versions, well let's not worry about them as they are in Japanese.
Mod chips enable your Wii to read backup (downloaded) games using hardware.
Soft modding will allow you to run backups too, but is more difficult to achieve long term because you have to consistently change the software of the Wii to keep pace with new releases.
Homebrew is a type of software not licensed by Nintendo, but rather created by the community. Some of these homebrew apps include, backup launchers, USB Loaders, Media Players, drawing apps, games etc.
As a complete new starter don't mess around with your Wii until you have completely understood what you are doing, failure to do this could turn your nicely working Wii into a non-working Wii.
