Default New Switch Rod & Reel, need everything else......

I've purchased the following:

Beulah 10'8" 7 weight Platinum Switch Rod

Irideus ZEN Spey Salmon Fly Fishing Reel Steelhead & Saltwater fly reel 8wt-10wt

Line, leader and Tippett needs:

Looking for the proper line/lines to do fundamental Switch, Traditional Spey, Scandinavian (Scandi) and Skagit (Pacific Northwest) styles of fly casting.

Trying to understand the complete setup of line, leader and Tippett for each style. I'm trying to get into this Switch Rod fishing, but the line confusion is extensive to say the least.

I've been a traditional fly caster for over 30 years, this is the next logical step, and I am excited to make it, just very confused.

Please any help with sites containing drawings of lines, proper build up and understanding of the different sections.
