All I have is a stove, so I can’t grill. Any good things to make that aren’t pasta related

Meatloaf. You'd have to be literally retarded to fuck it up.

Other than all the things? I just pan-fried some pork cutlets, and had them with rice (cooked in chicken stock) and green beans with a little butter and salt.

Pick a primary dish, usually some sort of meat. Pick a side dish or two that compliments the primary dish, try to keep at least one of them a vegetable because they're cheap and good for you. E.g. Steak + potatoes + green beans. Or chicken + rice + broccoli. Once you've got a handle on cooking basic forms of various meats (e.g. how to cook a steak or how to bake chicken) you can branch out and start making things more complicated with various sauces, gravies, spices, and so on.

Grills are the most overrated method of cooking there is. Pan seared steaks are far better and a great place to start cooking. Beef is one of the best meats to learn to cook with because it’s forgiving and easy to know how cooked the meat is. Start with some cheap sirloin steaks at least an inch thick. Side can be some easy mashed or roasted potatoes and some sautéed broccoli. That’s an easy dinner that can be cooked by the most novice chef but an experienced chef can elevate to pure culinary bliss. In other words it’s a dinner you can cook over and over and over while you get better. Ramsay has a great video for an easy and fast steak and potato dinner on YouTube somewhere.

OP, all of this.

When you rent, and you don't own an outside BBQ, or have inadequate ventilation to use a grill pan, then you just don't. Go out to dinner occasionally to get your smoke cravings done.
Focus on mastering what your current supplies give you. If you own a 12in covered skillet, you could learn how to do more one pot dinners, or things that start on the stovetop and finish in the oven.
If you had a dutch oven, you'd focus on your frying skills, or slow simmered soups, or whatever.
What you cook is also determined by your time each day, and budget, and climate, etc.
Chef school starts with eggs, or sauces. If you think that is an easy beginning for you, I'd beg to differ. Do what anon said, make your dinner, main and 2 sides, one of those sides maybe a starch. Put together a dessert that uses whatever pans you own.
Get a new kitchen item, like a nice medium nonstick, and start working on pancakes, fritters, crab cakes, omelettes. Cook for your pan, and master everything it can do. Eventually you master some things after a couple trials of each recipe.

>Meatloaf.
Yup. And, if you shape them into dinner sized loaves, like 6 or 8 mounds on a sheet tray, they freeze well to enjoy this dinner later down the line, or take one out to slice into a work sandwich, or open faced meatloaf sandwich.
