Questions about Joomla and editing main page of website

I am new to using Joomla (I am a .net developer by day) and I am having a hard time finding any good information in regards to editing the websites main landing page. I have found tons of info about adding content, changing layout, etc. , but nothing about changing the main page of the site. Any help or pointing to a good guide or book would be appreciated.

You can edit the main landing page via
Content -> Front Page Manager in the administration interface

I checked that, but it seems to only be for adding content to the page. I am speaking about adding graphics and such. Or woudl this mean a new template?
What do you mean with changing the main landing page.
Normally you have more then one things on the landing page.
So you could create a new content (a static page) and add it to the frontpage and remove all other things from there.
But normally you show a news category or a newsflash on the startpage.
