Hello All, Total Newbie here! Please tell me if zhè and zhège is fully interchangeable to say "this"?

As a Newbie, you definitely don't need to worry about that right now. I would stick with "zhège" for now, and later on you'll learn the proper measure words to use in place of "ge," but it won't hamper communication in the meantime.
You can say "这个车" (zhè ge chē) and be understood just fine, even though it should actually be "这辆车" (zhè liàng chē).
