By rotating the outer dial you can control the amount of magnetic force applied to the spool.
The inner dial controls the number of break shoes that the centrifugal break system uses to slow down the spool's rotation. By turning this dial to 1,2,or 3 you allow 2,4 or 6 break shoes to create friction against the spool's breaking ring.
Since you are new to baitcasters I suggest you start off with the 10 setting on the outside dial and 3 on the inner.
Also I suggest you start off filling the spool only to 75% capacity. This will help limit your backlashes.
I have replaced all my Shimano reels with these Browning Midas reels. With them set properly I can cast into the wind with no problem. Plus set them for distance and nothing else I've ever used will cast as far.
My 20 I use in the chinook run, 15# mono, landed 2 over 20#. Use to cast salt periodically, 28# ling, but now use Curado 300 most often, although the 20 has bigger drag, Curado casts 3/16oz better.
Ling cod aren't a good test for drags.
Have another 10, w/20# braid I use in slop, good choice.
Key on the line you want to use, then use a rod that will handle the line kindly. Drag's less an issue, but this one will handle anything I'll catch
