I have to admit I cheated, some kind soul posted their settings with a very similar height and weight to mine on Gustavo’s brilliant how to guide. Copied those and hey presto a different machine!

One more, particularly as you're not very experienced.  Make small changes (except for sag), make them one at a time with a test ride after each one so you'll know what effect it has, and keep notes (I use my phone) so you know where you began in case you need to go back.

+1 for making notes and only doing one thing at a time, but for someone new to suspension adjustment I would suggest to make bigger changes initially so one learns what each adjustment does, otherwise small changes may not be noticed. If the adjustment is worse it is easy to refer to the notes and reverse it.

This is sounding a lot more complicated than I thought 🤪

It's really not.

Step 1 - set sag.

That will get you 80% of the way.
