I have just discovered Silverstripe and although it looks promising
I can't find too much documentation for beginners.
What I need to do is convert my website http://www.virtualorbis.com/web/
However after reading your website's information I still have unclear where to start for:
1. How to change the default theme?
2. What to do to create a vertical menu zone?
3. How to insert flash animations (apart than using html code inside the pages)?
Can anybody point me to information urls I could check out?

The best place to start is in the Tutorials section of the site: http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=tutorials
Theming is relitvely easy if you have HTML and CSS knowledge. You will find in your default installation (if you installed using BlackCandy theme) two files called /themes/blackcandy/templates/Page.ss and /themes/blackcandy/templates/Layout/Page.ss. These two files are your basic Views (the 'V' in 'MVC') and hold all the HTML and variables that display on your site.
Before delving into themes, I suggest you go through the tutorials first so you can get a good primer on how Silverstripe works.
