As said by Andreas, you need to learn TS and not only rely on some 
external template. However you should consider an important point before 
willing to change all headers.

The "generator" metatag comes from TYPO3 itself, not from your external 
template. I think it should not be too complicated to remove it. But 
there is a comment:

This website is powered by TYPO3 - inspiring people to share!
TYPO3 is a free open source Content Management Framework initially

and according to TYPO3 terms of use, you are not authorized to remove 
them. Thus you won't be able to prevent a hacker to discover that you 
run TYPO3 for your website.

Anyway, trying to hide such piece of information to protect you is not a 
good idea. You should consider really protecting your website instead of 
obfuscating comments.
