RE: Editing a picture
Have you got the original font? Or are all the letters in the new logo also in the old one?

For the rest, difficult to tell what to do and how to do it without having a look at the logo. Some are simple, some are not.

RE: Editing a picture
Gimp is one of the right tools to do that, but since you sound like a total beginner with Gimp (por with image editing software), you are facing a very serious challenge. Actually, given that the text font is quite plain, and that the logo is nothing more that pile up of circles (well, ellipses for the top two), it's better and quite easy to redo it from scratch (see attachment)

However, if this is a logo, it would be better to use a vector graphics editor (Gimp is a bitmap editor), so that you can later resize the logo at will. The equivalent of Gimp for Vector graphics is called InkScape. Redoing the logo fram scatch with InkScape wouldn't be much more difficult than with Gimp (might even be easier).

RE: Editing a picture
Bitmap graphics is putting spots of paint on the wall. If you want to transfer to a bigger wall without redoing it from scratch, either you enlarge the spots, or you have some code to interpolate the new spots. Neither solution is very clean.

Vector graphics is making an instruction sheet for a brush (a sequence of "go from there to there using that color..." commands). If you have a bigger wall, no problem, just multiply all the distances in the program to adjust, and you have a bigger image, just as clean.

The "standard" format for vector graphics is SVG (for instance, the country flags on Wikipedia use this format). The same .SVG file can produce a 64x64 icon or a 6400x6400 picture. You can trying with Gip (Gimp will load SVG but won't save them as such, and you'l have to specify an image size when loading them). Postscript (.PS/.EPS is also mostly a vector graphics language)

RE: Editing a picture
I understand everything he wrote above but if you are a really new beginner just go to Youtube and put in the search line vector vs bitmap graphics

This may have been posted a *long* time ago, but I just read it.
I wanted to complement you on a really good explanation in simple, clear English!
