Help needed - new to HA

While have had HA as a front for ISY for some time, I am new at programming. I have hit a few road blocks as I do not fully understand some elements of automation in HA.
I am quite desperate and would love for someone to guide me. Ideally someone would create a blueprint as I am not very technical and I am willing to pay for someone’s time.
What is the best way to get that guidance ?
