The Afghan Mujahedin (i.e. fighters of Jihad) were the forces the existed in Afghanistan in the 1970s and 1980s. They were led by Osama bin Laden. However, after the withdrawal of the Soviet Union from Afghanistan, they began to coalesce into an organization devoted to continuing the Jihad, but against the United States. This would require a different organization style since a guerrilla war was not going to work to target a distant power. This was the formation of al-Qaeda. Since most of the same people shifted into this new organization and it was also led by Osama bin Laden, people view the Afghan Mujahedin as the start of al-Qaeda.

The Afghan Mujahedin were the most organized and successful resistance fighting against the Soviet Union and the spread of Communism in Afghanistan. Since the US was opposed to such advancement, it supported the Mujahedin. When the Soviet threat departed, the US stopped supporting the Mujahedin. The quick break between these two groups alienated Osama bin Laden, the leader of the Mujahedin, who then decided to organize the remaining Mujahedin into an organization designed to take down the US, al-Qaeda.

Yes. During Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989, the CIA assisted the Afghan Mujahedin in their guerrilla war against the Soviets.

YES. Generally speaking, Mujahedin are pious Muslims who pray often. Now there are certainly people who just "do the dance", but most Mujahedin genuinely believe that they have a command from God via Muhammad to destroy the infidels and "impious Muslims" with whom they disagree in righteous jihad.

It could be said distantly that the US CIA assisted in the training of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, but this is overly simplistic.From 1979 to 1989, when Afghanistan was the site of war between a Soviet Communist puppet regime and the Jihadist Mujahedin rebels, the US CIA supported and trained the Mujahedin as a way to overcome the Soviets. However, when the Soviets withdrew in 1989, the US ceased all support to the Mujahedin. In the post-victory environment, the Mujahedin consolidated and used their remaining US-given monetary resources and the training that they had received to create the al-Qaeda Organization in Afghanistan. Since the founding of al-Qaeda to the present (excluding errors of judgment in Syria in 2012), the US has not provided funds to the organization nor has it provided any new training materials.
