Sshd config file has it's own manual page. You can see it using 'man sshd_config'. The number of options is very high, but you don't need them all. Look into your own, default configuration file. It should be heavily commented, all used options described. It shouldn't be hard to tweak it to your needs, because default config makes sense and should work.

I assume you are using a broadband connection with a fixed IP address or your ISP has set you up with a method to connect to your machine from the internet.
You will need to setup your modem to to provide the connection from the internet to your local network.
