In the channel strips on the mixer window there are boxes above and
below the fader.  Right-click and "Add Plugin..." - pretty
straightforward.  Why are there two boxes?  Pre- and post-fade effects.

If you want to send a channel to an effect bus (like maybe a reverb),
create a bus, put the effect in the pre-fade slot, then in the track add
a Send.  Hook its outputs to the input of the bus, enable it, and
reverberate away as much as you like.
