I am trying to figure it out, can any spell caster use any spells, or just those listed in the scenario? Still looking at all sorts of rules trying to figure some of the stuff out.

Use the ones listed in the scenario first. You can swap out at your discretion later. Note that you should be aware whether a certain spell is absolutely needed or if a certain spell is overpowered in a scenario.

Yup, a spellcaster is limited to the spells specified at the start of the game. They don't have access to the whole deck of spells.

So in the first encounter "In the clutches of the Picts" the overlord playing Zogar Sag does not have any spells, even though he has that as an ability?

Yes that is correct. No spells for Zogar in the first scenario. It's pretty balanced as is, but if you add more powerful heroes you could give him a spell or two.

Often, characters have an ability they will not be able to use in a given scenario. Or not from the start. For instance, there is a scenario in which Valeria begins with only one weapon, even though she has ambidextry. So she has to find another weapon to be able to exploit it. A lot of heroes have the swimming skill, but several scenarios have no water to swim in. So always check the setup of the scenario first, in order to know which skills/weapons/spells each hero and leader will be able to use.
