My personal rule of thumb:
"Does" is only for third singular pronoun, Other than that, use "do".

There's nothing shameful in asking about grammar and correct usage of vocabulary.

Both the words "effect" and "affect" are nouns.

If you're confused, you could just plug in the sentence in any grammar tool to see what's
right. I use this writing tool
from 123HelpMe and Grammarly.

Effect is used when you're describing an impact on something.(result of a change)
Affect means to influence or to produce a change in something. (Making a change)
