eCart 5, dynamic shipping and static inventory?

Hi folks, this is the first time I'm trying to set up a static product list for a client (I've used databases in the past), because he only has 10 items. I am struggling with a few things...
1. I don't see a tutorial on a way to add variable shipping options for weight and dimensions on one hand AND flat rate on the other by customer selection. (new feature in 5). Nor do I see a tutorial for adding the automatic order database for orders that eCart is supposed to be able to create. I have Universal Email 4...
2. Since I'm creating the inventory by hand, I suspect that all detail pages will also have to be created manually? There is no wizard that creates the rest of the pages or checkout forms? Am I missing something or does that work if you are using a dynamic database? I remember the automated process from earlier versions....
I'm just wondering if it might actually save me time to create a database for the products instead of doing it manually...

Also, since /if the weight and dimensions are stored statically, I'm not sure where to put that information, hence the need for a tutorial as per question 1.
