Just bought first house - lawn care/seeding questions

Hey guys, im not a new member here, however i havent been on here in quite a while, as ive had no need to be haha. Anyway i just bought a home here in Iowa with lots of gorgeous landscaping and many oak trees.

However, theres a lot of yellowing/dying of grass and theres some bare areas with absolutely no grass in what id call a mainly shaded area between garages and one area behind house.

So what im needing to know, is what type of seed would work well in those areas, and what id need to do to get the lawn looking luscious and green again throughout 100% of the yard. I have included some pictures to help with the descriptions etc and only have access to generic run of the mill garden and landscaping stores.

I apologize beforehand for some of the pictures as your trying to look through deck side etc.
