Need help with theme Buddy Daily

Is there a manual with instructions?

1. Specifically, I want to remove the categories/pages that show above the menu. How can I do that?

2. The marketing buzz talks about the flexibility of this theme and how alternative formats can be used. How is this done?

3. There are three posts shown on the post page (with more in the sidebar). Is there a way to have more than three? How does one control which ones are shown (by category? date? or what)?)

4. The sidebar repeats posts shown in the main section. How does one produce a list without the repeats.

At this point, I am very frustrated. I certainly hope there is some kind of manual to answer these and other questions.

Thank you for your response(s),
