What is it you want specifically... syntax?  Do these tables you want to edit/add already exist?

Ok... assuming Table1 is the table, here's the general syntax (substitute your column names as needed).  If this isn't clear, you could describe one of your tables to me (tablename + columnnames) and we'll use that...

Add syntax-
insert table1 (
    column1,
    column2,
    column3
) values (
    'NewValue1',
    'NewValue2',
    'NewValue3'
)
go

Edit syntax-
update table1
set    Column1Name = 'ChangedValue',
       Column2Name = 'ChangedValue'
where  TableKey = 1
