Frustrated trying to reduce noise in PSE 2019

I have PSE 2019 and know probably about one-tenth of a percent of what I need to know about how to use it. Up to this point, about all I've done is change exposure and adjust highlights, lowlights and vibrance.

I decided today I would experiment on some cull images with noise reduction in a RAW (ARW) file, found some instructions here and here. but the deeper I get into this, the 'loster' I get and the more obscure the meanings of what I'm reading.

Are there any quick-n-dirty instructions anywhere that will tell me how to reduce noise in PSE 2019?

I don't want the higher education of B&W vs color noise, JPEG artifacts or composite layers or why layers are important or all the things I can do with layers, at least not right now.

Or am I going to have to sign up for a university course to reduce noise.

A funny: I think I'm beginning to sound like a friend of mine who called me a lot for computer help. He would say, "I don't want to know how to do it; I just want to doit!".
