Besides which, if you wanted to implement hook_help(), the function 
name would be changed to mymodulename_help(). Defining a function 
called hook_help() wouldn't work -- that function would never be 
called by Drupal core.

Check out the module developers tutorial on drupal.org, which might 
clear up some confusion about how to implement hooks.
