The help files have everything you'll find in the instruction manual, which is written in something like 5-point type.
Fritz is powerful software, not just a strong engine. It takes time and some effort to become a skilled user.
The barrage of questions you've thrown up suggests you might benefit from looking at the icons across the top. If you hover on one, it will tell you what it does. Then try clicking on one and see what it does. Trial and error is better than most manuals, anyway.
Do read Steve Lopez's T-notes. The man knows Fritz, and he understands the English language, too.
