Thanks Very much .

Yaw damping is a means of making small automatic rudder corrections to keep the plane from wobbling.. Back course takes to long to type so here is a link http://www.flightsimbooks.com/learning/flight25.php that explains it. I also seem to recall there is a sticky thread somewhere on this suite that goes into ILS approaches that contains info on it as well.

Look at the last part of that post and it will tell you how to enter an airport into the GPS as a destination. The ILS approach guides in that post will help you with the AP and approaching the airport. To follow the pink line on the GPS, you need to have the GPS/NAV switch to GPS, and engage the NAV button on the AP. 😉

Stick to the same aircraft/panel for a while because the APs look and work differently on different panels.

Program all the necessary data into AP before take-off but don't switch it on yet. Once you're safely in the air, with flaps and gear retracted, switch on AP and watch what happens.

You have to input data every time before you take-off... if that's what you mean by regularly.
