Drupal blocks, beans, etc.

I need to create "hub pages" (pages with multiple blocks to different areas of a Drupal site) but I have limited access to what I can modify.

Right now the pages that are supposed to be "hub pages" are just simple content pages with a series of divs and inline CSS as blocks, which IMO is a really bad way of coding pages when we can use Drupal to its full potential. And we're also wasting a lot of time tweaking the inline CSS which is being overwritten by the Drupal css...

I think what we should be doing for browser compatibility is to use the "Drupal Blocks" area of the site to create blocks that can easily be added to multiple pages but I don't fully understand how Drupal blocks work.

I'm not really sure what I should be doing and with limited access to most of the block types (the only blocks I can create are "beans"), I need to understand this more before I can get the access I need from the other team who installed the site.

There are several other types of blocks already created so I added some HTML content to it, but I don't know how to add that block to a bean page or if it should be added to a content page?

Please help.
