One of the easiest ways for a new user to access and edit config files from the CLI is to run Midnight Commander (a file browser), which is started with the command 'mc".

Use MC to browse to the desired file, hit F4 to open it for editing, make the changes, hit F2 to save, then F10 exits. You'll find that MC is an excellent CLI file browser and may help you become more familiar with your file system.
