you may use an extension to show records in a defined way.
an example may be ext:tt_news which was (mis)used for a lot of kinds of 
the follow-up (tx_)news may be used in similar ways.
these extensions provide you with a simple way to:
* list records (maybe with subqueries and pagination)
* display single records
* enhance records with additional fields
just use HTML-templates (and some typoscript) to define display-markup 
instead of programming something in PHP

this is one way.
some may say: create an extension with all configuration so you can 
version it and transfer it to another installation (maybe just in case 
of an rebuild after a crash)
the old way is fileadmin/ where I add: split data from configuration:
use fileadmin/data/ for editors and fileadmin/sys/ for admins
so HTML-templates could be in fileadmin/sys/html/ and special templates 
e.g. in fileadmin/sys/html/news/...

extensions belong in typo3conf/ext/<extensionkey>
if you use the Extensionbuilder to kickstart an extension it will be 
stored automatically there

you need to configure (typoscript) the news to use your templates 
instead of the default templates inside the extension. see the 
documentation for exact typoscript keys and NEVER change the 
default-templates in place (use a copy (in fileadmin/.... to be able to 
update the extension later on)
