What is Nietzsche's view on morality and how does he come around to it?

Much of my reply to your question of WTP applies to this as well. Since Kaufmann, all of N's works are available in adequate translations, and there is a large number of secondary sources to aid in interpreting his thinking. If you are interested in a quick overview, you could consult the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (online).
Rather than ask a general question which by its very nature would elicit not very useful responses, it might be preferable to read The Genealogy of Morals and then ask more specific questions about his position that morality as a human phenomena can be explained by healthy and unhealthy (these seem to be used in a normative sense at times in his works) manifestations of the WTP.

Beyond Good and Evil would be a useful read for this topic, too.
