I want to have a section for News and Events on my website. So I will have News List Page and Detail page. And a block on a home page (tabs) that display recent 5 news and events in two separate tabs.

What is the process involved. Or how to do it?

What is the best practices of implementing / defining News / Events custom content? Any article that describes the process of adding this would be fine!

These questions may sound stupid, but I'm new and doesn't clearly get everything. So your help is very useful and appreciated. Thank you in advance.
