Wordpress allows you to select certain pages to be the parent page of the current one you have opened. Then with the wp_list_pages function you can list child pages in your navigation. It is pretty cool: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tag … Parameters
Actually, this isn't complicated at all.
Categories are created in your WordPress control panel (Dashboard, if you prefer) under "Posts". You can see the menu option until you click posts.
Once you click on Categories you can add a category. To make it a sub category (or child) just use the Category Parent drop down box to choose the higher level. To make a sub-sub-category choose on of the subcategories as the parent and so on.
Same thing with Pages. Click Add New and on the right hand side you'll see an option to select the parent page.
