Default VSTO add-ins

Hi I am trying to install VSTO, using Wrox P2P VS2005 Professional's instructions. It seems that since the text came out so has SE, and as a result of this or perhaps something else I cannot A) create a new Word add-in and create/select my document, and B) when I go to the INSERT menu in VS there is no Word application options menu, like it says there should be on page 781 (chapter 55).
I have searched far and wide but MS are no help and I am at the end of my rope - I just want to try the technology out for goodness sakes!

There seem to be many different versions, including the VSTO SDK, and Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System 2003, Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the Microsoft Office System, and then Visual Studio Tools for Office 2003, Visual Studio Tools for Office 2005 and Visual Studio Tools for Office 2005 SE (Second Edition). Then there are betas for Orcas and add-ons like Cypress - however what I really need is plain vanilla VSTO2005. It seems to be a free download but I have wasted half a day trying to get it. The only successful search for 'VSTO' on the MSDN Index - February 2007 - found "Jul 2006 Creating a Multi-Tier Application Using Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Microsoft Office (VSTO) (Level 200)"....probably not what I need right now.

The samples I have (from MSDN, which confuses me) assume that there will be a menu "File->New Project->" but instead I have "File->New Project->Other Languages->Visual Basic->Office->2003 Add-ins"; this allows me to build a VSTOSE add-in, however I do not have the option of operating on an imported document template/workbook.
