By Now You know Apps Architecture , Installation 11i Apps & you had a glance Filesystem of Oracle Apps Vision Instance (If you don't understand all directories in file system don't worry, It took 2 years for me to understand various directories in Apps 11i)

Next you should try is Start Stop Oracle application 11i Services .
Order of Startup is 
First Database Services & then Application Tier Services (Middle Tier)
Order of Shutdown is 
First Application Tier Services & then Database.

In order to check How to Start Stop Oracle apps 11i Middle Tier services & where are shutdown / startup script exist check

Database & DB Listener startup / shutdown scripts are under $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/scripts/$CONTEXT_NAME or $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/scripts/$SID ( depending on your Apps 11i & AD version ) is used to control database . Start/Stop database is used to control database listener ( Note that database listener is different from Apps listener)
