When you Insert Header and Footer then DESIGN TAB will show up
Select option Different First Page and hit enter.

Header and Footer will start from Page 2

I would like to insert a section and page break in a document so that my current data,  header and footer start on page 2.

you don't need both to get a single page before your text!

go to the start of the document and create a new section:
Page Layout tab ―> Page Setup group ―> click on Breaks  ―> select Section Breaks ―> select Next Page
now go to page 2
Insert tab ―> Header & Footer group ―> click on Header  ―> select Edit Header
and the Header & Footer Tools is displayed

before modifying page 1, uncheck Different First Page box AND deselect Link to Pervious

you are now all set to go.User generated image
