I know, I am a Windows fanatic, so:

if I buy a virtual private server (VPS), I will have to know Linux/Ubuntu, stuff like this – to be able to manage it (transfer files, configure settings, etc)?

It depends on what VPS you go with, you can buy a managed VPS (costs more) but then you want have to deal with that. Some VPS/Cloud hosting you pretty much do everything

You can lease a Windows VPS, but it is normally more expensive than a *nix based version.

When you have a control panel installed like cPanel or Plesk I don’t see any need for linux knowledge.

I prefer Plesk, but you still need *nix knowledge if you need to make ‘advanced’ changes to the system.
For example, installing packages from repos, installing FFmpeg, upgrading PHP, etc.
