I've never had a crush/relationship before so I'm new to this stuff. How do you know you love someone deep down in your heart? Is it just intuition?

Hmm, not even crush? That's interesting.
Crushes are usually kind of fantasies, inspired by imaginations. People gaze at others from a distance and their imaginations take over. It's something people generally grow out of at some point.
As to love, how people experience it is different.
In my case, I'd describe the act of falling in love as kind of like the girl becoming my oxygen supply. I can't live without her at that point and miss her all the time. That's a kind of intoxication phase though which doesn't last forever.
When that period is over, it starts to change from me missing her all the time to just not being able to stand being apart for a long time. That's where I am with my wife, where I can sometimes take her company for granted, but start feeling lost and incomplete when I go on overseas business trips where I'll already be missing her a lot the moment I step in the airplane.0

The answer can change so much about your life, from how you interact with a current (or potential) partner to how you view yourself to what goals you have for the future.
If you’ve fallen in love with someone, you probably have an atypical reaction when witnessing them excelling at something you don’t.
Because romantic partners feel connected and can share the outcomes of each other’s successes, romantic partners will often feel pride and positive emotions when they see their partner succeed, even at something they themselves can’t do, rather than feeling negative and inferior.
Wishing you the best of luck.1
