Hi Freddy,

You may want to start analysing the Content & Menu tabs in the admin UI.
will lead you to various things and findings that will be necessary for
your site.

Compare the found informations with the actual files from the catalog
The Content TAB will lead you in the pages, templates, components, found
in catroot/pages, 

The Menus TAB will lead you in 2 places, catroot/variables and

If you open the found files with a text editor, you'll find tags that
you can then 
lookup on the site and in the manual. Then you'll understand better how
it all works together.

The easy way is to create a new page, and once you put stuff (say Hello)
in it, save it, publish it, 
 and confirm that it's working when accessing directly, add a menu item
in the desired menu and 
point to that page in the target field. Save the menu and publish it,
done! Your Menu item 
should be LIVE and pointing to the new page.

Good luck
