Seeds are the number of people with the full file, leeches are people that have a partially complete file and in most cases are still (or currently) downloading it. So if you download a file with 0 and 0, that means nobody currently has the file so you won't be able to get it either.

Download speed is dependent on how many seeds and leeches there are typically. If there are a lot of each then you'll probably get very fast download speeds. I'm not sure of how it works precisely, but I think if you upload more then your download speed is more favourable.
