shortly after a workout have some sort of high bioavailable protein with nutrients that help enable the utilization of proteins in your system(usually whey but not the cheap stuff). also something with a high glycemic index(like grape juice) to boost your insulin after a workout which helps drive animo acids into your muscles. although pineapples are high-medium, i prefer them because pineapples repair damaged cells after workouts.

The energy supplement you should take before workout. Be sure it doesn't have too much caffeine in it or you'll crash pretty heavily. I am a soccer player and I use an energy drink called FRS. Works pretty well for me because it is low caffeine and sugar. It uses healthier ingredients to get me going. I found a free trial here http://www.voernix.com/2008/07/frs.html, otherwise I think you can get it at stores too. As for protein you can take it both before workout and after. If you only want to take it once then take it after you workout. For protein either take a powder or a bar.

I'm not sure what specific supplement you are using. If it's a whey protein/Muscle Milk type agent then you should be drinking it within about 30-40 minutes after exercising. If it's something like NO Xplode or some creatine/caffeine type thing, then I would advise you taking it about 30 minutes before working out. Edit: Superpump 250 or NO Xplode are solid pre-workout supplements. If you just want to add mass/muscle take Muscle Milk (buy the lean stuff or you will get fat).

Whey is a good protein for men. It is better than soy protein in the fact that men digest whey much easier than women. You should take whey protein before (1 hour) and after workouts(1 hour). Breakfast is the best time, because the shake powders usually have other vitamins and minerals to start off the day right. 2-3 times a day should be plenty, if not more than enough. Keep your diet rich in a variety of foods, different colors and textures. Eat lots of low fat/fat free dairy. Eat veggies. You need complex carbs, so choose gain breads and potatoes and oats. Try to make a workout plan that you can excel from day to day. Drink powders with chocolate mix or put some in your cereal with milk.
