I need a crash course on what Serendipity is, and what I can achieve with it!
Serendipity is a weblog engine to create a weblog or "blog". See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog.

I have seen the well designed templates (format .tpl ) but have no clue on how to use these templates with my content. Do these templates work only with Serendipity, or does any application that imports .tpl files able to work with them?
They do only work with Serendipity.

This leads me on the question: Is Serendipity a Content Management System? I need someone's help in unraveling this connundrum, cause I like the templates. What I can achieve with them is not so obivious yet, though I see the potential, once I have figured out how to use them...
Serendipity is not a full blown CMS, and it doesn't want to be (in contrast to Wordpress, the best known blog engine, that is often used as a CMS). That said, you can use Serendipity as a CMS - it has static pages and all, but it wouldn't be your best choice for that, I think.
