Default lipo questions with charger questions can you all help

tried to get answers on another forum that didn't work so figured you all know more than them
i am just getting set up for lipos. I bought a thunder t6 multi charger a power supply for the charger and bought 4 lipos they are 5000 mAh 40c battries
question I have is on the proper care and charging if them. the manual for the charger was not real specific on it
this charger has 4 charge ports and comes with plugs for those ports as well as 2 "balance boards". it also has a few diffrent settings to charge at one is "lipo charge" one is "lipo fast charge" and there is a balance as well as storage and discharge modes.
my questions are
1 to charge the way I undersitand 1 amp/ 1000mAh of capacity which would put me at 5.0 amps when charging.... do I just need to set the charger for "lipo charge" and let them go? and from what I hear and read I should plug the balance wire in also.... it should I put them in "balance mode"?
2 when storeing what amp should they be stored at?
3 what would I use the fast charge for and at what settings should it be? should it be the 5.0amps like a normal charge?

would really appriciate some help everyone my boy is loving to run his truck but I want to make sure I get the care of these lipos right
in a total newb with lipo but wanting to learn and learn the right way
