My suggestion is to get a good book on the subject. You might like 70-462 Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases, which covers the topics in your question.

If you want something smaller, then I would suggest Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 Administrator's Pocket Consultant.

Usually those tasks depends on each DBA experience and companies strategy (Virtual machines vs Physical machines; Local storage vs Network storage; use of clusters; 32bits system vs 64bits system, etc...).

For maintenance plans I don't recommend the default provided by Microsoft but this one by Ola Hallegren. You can run a single script and will create jobs for reindexes, backups and integrity checks.

For database files, recommendation is for separate data files from log files. Try to set virtual log files (VLF) in a low number.
Tempdb it's a special database and recommendation it's to be separated from other database files. Brent Ozar has a nice article about this database.

Much more could be said about this question but here you already have something for a startup.

Good luck.
