When moving and adding sections in the Layout area of the template, I noticed it had a component section.
I cannot find any information on how to actually setup a component to appear in those areas.

Hi,Component in Joomla! mean the out put of component, example: article in Joomla! handle by component content (com_content), so out put of component content when you link menu item to article or blog category layout, so it will appears in component area. Most of case, the component area should be place at the middle of layout.

Ok, is there any way on using components which are not articles or blog category?

Hi,As I said, article or blog category is just example case, actually it’s out put for all component in Joomla!. When you select ‘Menu Item Type’ via menu item, you will see list component output.
