I have handed over a OC website, and It is my first contact with this Platform. I tried to modify, and already got stuck. Can you please give me a hint! Thanks!
- To modify a banner, or text on the "Home" - front Page etc... is this be done somehow in the back end? or do we modify .php files of the template?
But now, since you're here , better read about first, to find out, very basically, how this
OpenCart Software works, before asking any Questions about modifying existing Code.
OpenCart is an MVC(l) based Framework Construction, creating Web Pages, by use of
several Files, based in MODEL , VIEW, CONTROLLER, and LANGUAGE Sections, plus Data,
stored in a MySqli Database. Therefore, you will find NO ready built HTML/PHP Pages,
and you cannot just change anything somewhere, to make it look different on some page.
Just to give you a very basic impression. More can be found here:

And be aware, to usually only get Help here, if you talk Figures and Facts,
OC-Version - Theme, and Extensions used, it's a tech place here, but sure
no OC Beginners School. Don't forget, it's all about Cash, not only for you
But Google is always your best Friend, when it comes to OC related matters too!
Good Luck !
But if you want to customize banner then you need to make changes to home page .twig file(3x) or .tpl file(2x,1x), if it is a core home screen view and not a view via any extension.
