    Hello, cryptocurrency noob here.

    How do I know how to translate hashing speed in KH/s into darkcoin gain and whether I should or should not use a mining pool?
    Suppose I'll have 390 KH/s hashing speed, as Errorld has reported here (mining on i5 and CPUMiner 1.3 / minerd-corei7-avx file).
    I'm using Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit atm., but I'm open to change)

    Yes, you need a pool and estimated income for 390 KH/s @ current difficulty of 1386.0688 = 0.06 DRK per day (0.00048168 BTC/$0.20 USD).

    How can I reach these conclusions? I mean, 1) why do I need to and 2) where can I find current difficulty and the formula to calculate DRK per day?

    The lower the latency, the less rejects. Which means more profits. You can offset the difficulty by adding +0.001 to the end of your address. Check the beginners section.
