Good news : You are not an Idiot :)

It is a bad UI for this tool  : you can blame Microsoft (or the company that built the tool before Microsoft bought them ) , or simply know you way around it.

Here  youfo

Select the SharePoint site on the left pane

Then
File -> New : do not worry about the Menu at this time
SharePoint Content [TAB] -> Workflow


Best of luck
