In the LaTeX context, turning a source file into a PDF. More generally,
the process of setting out a document for printing

Depends on the journal. Some accept LaTeX source and use it for
typesetting the journal, and so you do need to use their template. Other
journals do not, and you can use a simple LaTeX document.  Soemthing like

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\begin{document}
\title{My title}
\author{A.N. Other}
\maketitle

Some text for the paper here
\end{document}
