Firstly thanks for the wonderful cli-experience-changing tutorial!

I have but one gripe that I'm trying to sort out. Whenever I try to edit the command in 'vi' itself by pressing the 'v' key, it opens up in nano!

If someone would be willing to show how to fix this, it'd be much appreciated.

You need to update your $EDITOR variable to reflect the editor that you prefer.

Add this line to your .bashrc:

export EDITOR=vim
