This is not much different in any Reporting solution out there - there is always a designer allowing you to work with the report sections
and the different report items are there to help you build report content. They are not separate controls. Our advise is to go through the help documentation to understand what a report solution is used for, if you have specific questions - check our forums
which most probably already hold the answer you're looking for.
