Did you test drive it before you bought it? Didn't the previous owner go over these things with you? It will take you about 25 hours of operation before you will get comfortable with driving it.

Starting: Apply parking break, put trans in neutral, apply choke, turn key to start. Push in choke, let it idle and warm up. Place trans lever into gear, down for forward, pull back on sticks, remove parking brake. Let levers go forward and squeeze throttle.

Shifting: Come to a complete stop before shifting, it may require some jiggling, rocking, and manipulation.

Use of sticks: Fully forward to go forward, pull back on one side to turn in that direction. This will take practice.

The best thing to do is get plenty of stick time in an open flat field before hitting steep hills or tight terrain.
