Okay... question.  Is a dipthong 'two vowels of a language spoken as
one sound?'  Because I don't think that the engandan ae and y are
dipthongs, I think that they're their own characters.

No, a diphthong is simply when two different vowel sounds (or a vowel
and a glide/approximant/semivowel) are articulated in the same
syllable.

Even though your "y" for example is one character, it represents a
diphthong, just like the letter "a" in the English word "ate".
