Hey folks. I'm in a position where I have my basic design and page layout figured out, but I am really clueless when it comes to integrating the content.

My site is news oriented, so there will be frequent updates, and I want to be able to just type and add images without having to worry about copying the code for my main page, then recreating and saving the page under a different name, and then re-editing the code (which sounds like a needless waste of time). I just don't know how I'm supposed to be doing it.

Do people just go with custom templates for this sort of thing? I took a look at Joomla, but that went way over my head.

I didn't really follow that bit about copying and pasting and recreating. If I understand, though, everything you want in terms of function should be off-the-shelf with any CMS, but you might find it hard to integrate your template with Joomla, though it isn't that difficult once you identify the relevant portions of the relevant files.

Usually, the key is to find a template that most closely resembles the one you have currently, and then modify as necessary.

If this will be a single-user news site (i.e. basically a blog), consider using WordPress, which is probably the easiest to install and modify of any similar application.
