The computer language used assumes overall familiarity with
LaTeX.  If there's not someone nearby who can help you with
that, begin at http://www.tug.org/.  (A local university
with departments such as mathematics, physics, or computer
science might be a source for overall knowledge of LaTeX.)

"Template" is not exactly the right word.  What is at hand
is a substitute, called "elsarticle", for the normal LaTeX
"article" document class.  (The main indigenous LaTeX
document classes are "article", "book", and "report".)
