Basically: Humans, how do?
Go redo Howling Fjord and you will find your answer, young Padawan.
But basically, curse of flesh happened.
As to setting up a civilization: http://wowpedia.org/Human
Basically Arathor conquers all the tribes, and presto civilization. After the Troll Wars end the various city-states break off giving you the seven kingdoms. First War happens and Stormwind is crushed. Survivors flee north to Lordaeron and unify as the Alliance and giving Lordaeron rule over the seven kingdoms of humanity. After the Third War everyone splinters back off.
As to the Light, no one knows. Rumor has it humans were preaching about the Light before the First War, but little else is known. http://wowpedia.org/Church_of_Light
for more reading, though most of that is taken from the RPG which is non-canon, so use at your own risk.
