Need to add an HP office connect 1920 switch to network

I have a HP 1920 48 port switch.  This is configured on our network.  I purchased an 8 port HP office connect 1920s switch and I want to learn how to set it up on our network.  The screenshots attached shows the interface of the existing switch.  Which of these settings will I need to enter info into to get the switch running?  Can I jump off any port on the 8 port switch and plug it into any unused port on the 48 port switch to connect it to the network?  I know this is not a lot of info, but I want to start here so I can learn a bit.

You will need to configure relevant VLAN's on the 8 port model.
also you need to enable thos VLAN's as tagged between the 8port & 48 port switch.
If you need more bandwith then 1 cable can provide you can trunk 2 ports together and use the trunk port on both sides.

2nd the spanningtree configuration if the options is there use Fast-Spanningtree. (somtimes called: fast-PVST)
With trunking I prefer static ones. I have seen a few times where LACP trunk collapsed under heavy load.
(There were iscsi channels involved, when LACPframes somehow went missing and because of that a multi trunk became a flapping bundle is single links in parallel.  When all was quiet the links reformed and the whole lot could run again until the next avalange.
When this was changed to static no collapses were seen, even when the load increased.

Looks like this is beyond my techpertise.  Pretty new to this.   Anyway I can look at all the settings on the 48 port and just copy them down and enter them into the 8 port
