Final Paradigm shift from BDE - posting to database

I have moved our main erp system to Interbase from the BDE and DBASE.
We are using C++, I'm in the middle of making changes to the database and there seems to be something big I'm missing....

In the past we would,

add a query and datasource to a datamodule
set the sql statement to "select * from .... "
then we could open a form and display one record at a time, edit add new records, etc....

The paradigm shift seems to be to a multilevel application. ( not sure since we have moved many things at once )

The new platform is Interbase XE3 ( for the moment ) and we are using FireDac.

We are not using a grid. ( most examples have a grid )
Please point us in the right direction to learn the proper way(s) to create a record edit it and post the results.

I am aware that Blob "memo" fields have been extended since DBASE.
We are using a memo or blob field for misc notes for the record.

There are many things that work very easily as a result of our change, but, posting to a database seems to be overlooked in the demo's I've reviewed. Do we setup two queries - one that allows the browsing from record to record and another to post an inserted record?
