Haha, it's no problem. All this stuff can be overwhelming, and guidance is what the forums are for, right?
Unfortunately, I'm not really a Beats user though. I used Filebeat once and poked at it just long enough to get what I was trying to do working. I don't even remember what it was I was doing, let alone how I did it. I could probably dig through everything and point you to some more spots in the documentation, but I wouldn't have any more insight than you would finding those resources on your own.
I'd recommend asking over in the Beats section of the forums for help. That's monitored by the folks the work on Beats, they certainly know a lot more than I do.
