Set default record load?

I’m relatively new. I am creating a online auction for a nonprofit. Most of the site is functioning well! Now I want to be able to offer this to other groups. SO there would be more than one auction going on at a time. I have created an “Auction General Info” thing. It has fields such as “Auction name”, “starting date”, " Organization name". I’m thinking that I would use the URL parameter to send to user to select which record is used to choose the auction being used.

Do I set the Index page content as a “Auction General Info” type? How would I, using the “get from url parameter” select one of the “Auction things” as the current record?

Does the page and header/footer need to be specified as a type?
