Basic question (newbie)

I actually started my car the other day with a friend that knows way more than i do. I founf that most of the wiring I did was wrong (not dangerous but wrong just the same). We used this contraption sends 12 volts to the distributor and bypasses the ignition. It sounded good between the backfires, Can't wait to get this studd straightend out

I found the 12 volt key source in the engine compartment (orange wire about 10 guage) I am assuming this goes to the little stud on the engine side of the starter.

I was told to run the wires back to the battery for the msd. But if I put the hot wire to the main stud and ground the neg would that be the same thing?

Now that leaves me with a total of 3 wires to the starter: my msd hot (main terminal), the battery cable (main terminal) and the orange wire (small stud on the motor side of starter) is that correct? Also some proper terminology would be great to.
thanks guys…
