And I used to be in the same boat you are in. It took me forever to figure out how to do this, and the documentation is obscure to say the least. I worked it out through trial and error, and I can't guarantee that I'm doing it the best way. All I know is that it works

I use a PHP script to parse my RSS feed. The script I use is easy to set up - works as an include file or within a php page. I paid a coder $20.00 to write it for me.
My script does not handle XML named feeds. Must have a .RSS extension. It only has 3 variables you set, feed url, descriptions on or off, and total items.
If you want a copy of the script email me.
the file will need to be renamed as with a PHP extension.
You can see the script working on my news.iwantcollectibles site. (Link in the sig file below.) The main index page is a list of all the items.

Line 15 sets the first item.
Line 16 sets the last item.
Line 22 is the url of the feed - must be named .RSS
Lines 97 through 110 control the output display. You can insert HTML here to make lists or other displays.
