Hair Coloring: Stupid question, but...

Ok, some background: I have short, dark brown hair. Three months ago I decided to go blonde. There was a MAJOR mixup at the salon, they basically butchered my hair, but then corrected it. I went back a month later and had it toned down. Soon after I had major surgery and haven't been back since, so my roots are growing in.
I want to go back to my original color, or something close to it. But since I've been on disability, I simply can't afford to have the salon do it again. (And I'm not sure I'd want them to!) So I thought about coloring it at home.
My question is this: Is it just a matter of finding a hair color that's similar to my natural color and following the directions on the box? I guess my concern is coloring hair that is already colored. I'd be going from colored-blonde to colored-brown. Anything specific I should worry about in this regard? (I'm not looking to have highlights or streaks or any of that. Just plain ol' brown hair, nothing fancy.)
A second question is: I read on a website about hair coloring that there are different kinds -- semi-permanent, demi-permanent, and permanent. However, when I went to Target, I saw that ALL the hair coloring kits were for permanent color only. Does this really matter?
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
