I'm very new to drupal, I've got a basic understanding of PHP and how it should be written but I think I'm still struggling with the concept of where to add code, at what point I need to jump in to edit things and make my own style do its thing

All I want to do is change my default user menu from:

User Menu

 - My Account 
 - Log out

To

Logged in as:
[username]

My Account 

Log Out (where both buttons have mybtn class applied to them rather than in a ul)

I've seen I can remove the ul function from the list that is outputted with the following code

function MYTHEME_menu_tree__user_menu(&$variables) {
 return $variables['tree'];
}

And I've also tried to add the username to the content of the username with this block

function MYTHEME_preprocess_block(&$vars){

  global $user;
  $block =& $vars['block'];

  if ($block->module == 'system' && $block->delta == 'user-menu') {
    if (user_is_logged_in()) {
      $block->content .= check_plain($user->name);
    }
  }

}

(this code was modified from someone explaining how to change the subject of the block to the username)

I'd really appreciate any help with where to go next

Kind regards

I ended up slowly working my way towards the result, my main issue was trying to get the dpm to show me what content I can change - but that's just because I'm, still slightly unfamiliar with how the whole process runs

function MYTHEME_menu_tree__user_menu(&$variables) {
 return '<ul>'. $variables['tree'] .'</ul>';
}

function MYTHEME_menu_link__user_menu(array $variables) {
  $element = $variables['element'];
  $sub_menu = '';

  if ($element['#below']) {
    $sub_menu = drupal_render($element['#below']);
  }

  $element['#localized_options']['attributes'] = array('class' => 'my-btn');

  $output = l($element['#title'], $element['#href'], $element['#localized_options']);
  return '<li>' . $output . $sub_menu . "</li>\n";
}

function MYTHEME_preprocess_block(&$variables){
  global $user;
  $block =& $variables['block'];

  if ($block->module == 'system' && $block->delta == 'user-menu') {
    if (user_is_logged_in()) {
      $variables['content'] = check_plain($user->name) . $variables['content'];
    }
  }

}
