Is Yii easy to learn?

Past experience with any MVC framework may help a lot. Experience with either .net MVC or any Java framework proved to be really helpful as well.

As @samdark said, Yii is easy to learn and use but you need some previous knowledge. My advice is going step by step through the official documentation doing some test project. In a couple of months you will be able to do useful stuff. Best of luck for you!

If I haven't learnt PHP and CSS before. Is It tough? Or I need to follow a basic PHP course first?

Perhaps you can even learn it while learning something a bit simpler, like one of the micro-frameworks?
Silex is nice: http://silex.sensiolabs.org/
If you try to learn both, then I think it would be better. Silex will teach you about what happens behind the scenes in Yii.
I learn best when I work with something that is important to me.
So doing textbook exercises is not a good idea for me. I need a project that I want to do - I learned PHP while making a bug/issue tracker
You need to figure out what works best for you.

You can start from basic template and then move to advanced template.
At last, there is a no shortcut to hard work. So, if you want to learn something, you must spend considerable time learning it.
