The learn, etc. strings are just tooltips that show up when you are initially learning the ability. They have no technical use, though they make the spell much more user-friendly and a lot easier to manage.
EDIT: Oh, and solution to your problem. When learning the abil, it gives the abil, it just can't be seen/accessed. So, for auras and bonuses, just give the unit a dummy passive spell with no effect but with the tooltip, and for target spells, give a dummy spell that activates the desired spell when it is used. Hope this helps...
