hi,

you use Lock to get a pointer to the vertex/index buffer, so that you can write data to it. Then you unlock it, to feed it back to the card. Then you set the newly created buffer as a stream source. You want to tell the card what to render as you can have multiple buffers.
Abou the parameters, please refer to the SDK docs, it explains every single parameter very well.
