Do you have access to Visio? That would be the product to use otherwise I think there's a freebie online drawing program out there.

As far as nomenclature and diagram styles go, here are a few examples that I know of:

Tech-Coffee: Design the network for a Storage Spaces Direct cluster

Windows Server 2016 Networking – Part 3- Optimizing Network settings

Hyper-V Networking 101. Part 1: NICs and Switches

When it comes to physical ports then the key grouping them according to the team they will be bound to.

From there, map the team ports to the switch they will be connected to.

VMs can be grouped according to the virtual switch they are bound to.

VLANs can then be indicated for VMs by colour coding and/or naming/tagging them, the path, and switch ports.
