I've googled with no success and my screen is too small and cruddy to read the little letters.
Can anyone point me towards a transcribed list?

Couldn't find any, but luckily the main menu has a clearer description. I'm copying it here in case future people have the same issue.

The skills seem more like perks.
Can you only have a certain amount selected at one time, or can they all be used at the same time?

Can you get every skill? Or can you sort of make a specific character to fit a certain playstyle?

I don't have them all yet but they're all obtainable quite easily. Just collect everything you can and you should be able to unlock everything!

I'd suggest grabbing the 'Survivalist' (extra XP) & 'Advanced Salvaging' as early as you can. Then, though it might make you feel bad, kill every animal you see.
Orienteering helps you find items which boost xp too, I think, but you can't get it right away.
