Trim Azalea Bushes? Brown Thumb

Not sure about these critters either. See pics. Should I give 'em a haircut to let the flowers show? So much is happening under the foliage. I read through this article and still can't figure it out. What's the difference between pinching and pruning?

Exert: "Strong-growing new shoots should be pinched once or twice up to early August to encourage branching."

This whole pruning and cutting back thing is new to me. Do all plants accept it, or do some die? I keep hearing they will become bushier after awhile from cutting back.
