I know how to calculate moving averages ("mA") over an x day period, but I am curious about minutes, or is it the same?

i.e.; for a 5 day mA you'd add the close price of each of the days and divide by 5 (day1+day2+day3+day4+day5)/5

Is it the same exact thing for minutes? i.e.; for 30 minute mA, you take the last price of each minute of the last 30 minutes and divide by 30?

It's exactly the same. In any granularity you do (price_1+price_2+ +price_n)/n
