Template Building Blocks are executed when you publish something. They are used to transform your content, which is stored as XML in the content manager database, to something that your web application needs (typically html or, in cases like DXA and DD4T, JSON).

This type of question is what most people here would consider "basic knowledge", so it may be considered a very wide-open question.

I would recommend:

  1. Browse around the product documentation
  2. Maybe try to get some training (there's some online trainings available)
  3. Find someone working with you who knows the basics and can walk you through it for half a day?
