I'm familiar with 6502 assembly language and BASIC (but not so much on the C64) but I really want to start making games for the emulator (or actual machine). Is there a definitive manual or are there many manuals to get started. Are there PDF versions available or must I find copies on Amazon or E-Bay?

The Commodore 64 Programmer's Reference is the biggest must-have.

Aside from that, books like Mapping The Commodore 64 are useful, as is Jim Butterfield's assembly programming guide.
