That page says the guide is obsolete and is only preserved for historical purposes. Should I use the recommended guide linked on that page?

I have a general idea of how to stop/run processes because I do that every day, so I guess the main chunk of this is editing the text files and putting in the words where they belong. Would sed/awk work? Or will this not achieve the desired results because they are only stream editors and do one pass and are not state machines? (I remember the last time I worked with sed/awk to make mass changes to a text file, I was very unhappy with using such complicated syntaxes and stuff)
