I've you need help with a specific problem, there are a lot of people in this forum, who are willing to help. If you need basic training, I'd recommend that you start by completing all of the Solidworks tutorials that come with the software. They're all you'll need to get a good start.
Sounds like you might be more proficient in another software, and this is more of a conversion issue? If you can provide a file native to design, it could be converted over to a solidworks file. Let me know if you need help.
What are you wanting modeled & by when? Can you send a picture?
