I am confused about sharps & flats. I know the difference. Where I have the problem is: if there is a flat or sharp in the key signature & then a flat or sharp appears in a single measure, do I still flat or sharp the note, and, does it apply to that whole measure, or just that particular note in the measure? (I play handbells).

Whatever the key is, when you see a sharp or flat marked by a note in any measure, you flat or sharp that note. It's called an accidental, because it doesn't appear in the key signature. If the sharp/flat note DOES also appear in the key signature, they are just simply reinforcing that the note is sharp or flat, so it's just the same. And yes, when a note is marked sharp/flat in a measure, if that note appears again in that same measure, it will also be sharp/flat, even without the marking. I hope that answers everything
