There is the basic styling in the menu section of the theme options or you can use a menu plugin or you can use CSS in the CSS Inserts box to style just about any way you want.
If you want to use the WordPress menu just build the menu in Appearance>Menus and associated with either the Main Menu or the Cat Menu. In these setting Main and Cat only refer to the %pages or %cats that you add in the Style Header Area box to display one of two available menus. Once you play with this a bit you should get the hang of what's happening.
As for adding a single or multi-celled widget area in the footer just follow the instructions in the Add New Widget area section. Again it may take a bit to wrap your head around what is happening but even a non php coder like myself found it to be intuitive. An example of code that would add a two celled widget are in the footer with the content aligned top center would be.
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=Footer widget area&cells=2'); ?>
You would add this code to Footer Content box. This is a two celled widget area. If you took out the &cells=2 you would have a single widget area. Then you could put your table widget in the new widget that shows up in Appearance>Widgets.
