Editing the pages is fine -- it's your wiki :)

You need to add this to a page (Main.HomePage is fine):
(:includesection "#blog-summary-pagelist blogid=blog1
After your first email I tried to make the install instructions clearer
-- you might want to just check that you followed all the steps.

Okay -- this suggests that pmforms is not installed correctly. Make sure
you have it in the right directory -- it should go into your /cookbook

GlossyHue is basically a two column theme -- maybe you just don't like
it ;) Here's what I get with the GlossyHue skin:
http://wiki.solidgone.org/Test/MainHome -- do you see something different?

Correct. You should have:
(plus some other files)

That is not correct. See above. pmforms.php just goes straight into the
cookbook directory -- no subdirectory. You can put the
Site.PmFormTemplates straight into pmwiki/wikilib.d -- but this file is
not needed by BlogIt. I can see why it's unclear where to locate PmForms
-- I'll update the documentation to make this more clear.
