Your question leads me to believe that you are very new to this. Start with the newcomer post. You have to learn Lua and study other mods for a bit before you can start coding mods. Use the forum's search function like described in the newcomer post, and search for things like: character tutorial
There are loads of them. Even newer ones. And I have personally written several novels about perks on this forum, which include where to put things. But they wont help you much, if you don't know the language.

Oh well, might as well give a helping hand.

Here's my collection of good threads/posts with great content, either explanations or code snippets. You will also find the character templates and many other tutorials, by following the links in the newcomer post to the tutorial collections on the forum.
