emacs configuration help

Emacs has its own style sets I know but the thing is that no style set (like java, k&r, linux, gnu) satisfies me. I am a bit choosy in such things and hence I want to build my own style set and use it as my default style for any programs.

Now my question is how to do that - i.e. build my own configuration set having own indentation rules and number of spaces decided by me and everything else defined by me.

Next question is where can I learn about configuring an emacs environment in detail. There are thousands of docs over the net about how to use emacs but I need the configuration also.

I was a big fan of kwrite in which I had all the major functionalists in a rather easy way. With emacs I find myself out of place really. I really miss that editor.
