I am new to Joomla and have a quick question.

When building a custom template do I just need to add:

      if( mosCountModules( 'DESCRIPTIVE_TEXT' ) > 0 ) {
            mosLoadModules( 'DESCRIPTIVE_TEXT', -### );

wherever I want to have the option of sticking 'modules' so I can pick the area in the control panel?

Mmm... I don't think so.

I have not done this myself, but I think you will find what you need at, a little over half way down the page.
