[SOLVED] How to add/customize widgets?

I just downloaded Atahualpa, and I was very pleased, as it's so highly customizable.

However...I'm not a developer, I know nothing about code. Right now I'm trying to understand what I'm reading in the «New Widgets Area», and I don't! Understand, that is.

They give snippets of code for a very basic widget, I guess, but WHERE do I put the code?

HOW do I adjust the number of lines that appear in the «Recent Posts», and how do I move it? I can apparently no longer use the usual way in WordPress.

Maybe it's easy once I get the hang of it...I don't know ... I really would like to keep this theme.

To get experience with this what I did was to take the minimum code
HTML Code:
<?php bfa_widget_area('name=My new widget area'); ?>
and put it in one of the "Style and edit" areas. Then in WordPress there will be a new widget area in Appearance >Widgets. for instance take the code above and put it at the very top of the "Content ABOVE the LOOP" area in "Style and edit CENTER COLUMN". You then need to reload the front end page a couple of time and the backend as well. The new widget area which in this case will be titled My new widget area should then show up in Widgets. The reloading is the most important in that the new Widget area will not show up immediately. To delete the widget area remove the code from the area you put it in and then check the box at the top of "Add new WIDGET AREAS" and click the delete button. Once you play around with it a little it should be pretty obvious what you need to do.
