    In this article (Widget Area (API)/Customizing sidebar layouts) don’t say which is the file and where find it to modify. Understand all but but What is the file?
    thanks.

    Any PHP customizations you read about in any article over there should be made from your Child theme’s functions.php.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    So, for example —

    .fixed-sidebar .widget { border: none; }

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – http://vimeo.com/20917974. The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
