I am trying to find where in Magento's massively complex system, the templates are located and what blocks need to be modified.

I can use Chrome or Firefox web developer tools to see the code and easily test the modification, but when it comes down to actually making that change, I find myself wading through Magento's template directory and lost.

How do I find where the template is? How do I find the block name?

Magento has a highlight mechanism in System Configuration to find the template path and also show you the block name.

Go down to the bottom of the left hand navigation and look for Developer and look for the Debug windowshade.

Go to the top left and change the scope till you have the options.

System Configuration => Developer => Debug
    Template Path Hints
    Add Block Names to Hints
