"If you have one of those "wide angle lens" filters that attach to the front of a lens, throw it away."

 

If you have one of two of these type add-on lenses, do not use it ever, never ever.  It can and will damage the Canon lens.

"What WB would you suggest?"

"(it) is best when there is still natural light, low iso and daylight/tungsten WB, ..." "I have always been keen on low light photography/night photography ..."

 

The answer to all your questions is, post editing.  You need a good post editor like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements if you don't want the full blown PS.  You got a free editor, DPP4, with your camera from Canon which will do a good job, too.

 

Why?  Because you need to be shooting Raw file format.  Never jpg, you can not get the best pictures from jpg. Almost no camera setting effects a Raw file.  All that is set in the editor and you can set it where ever you want it or like it. Exposure and focus are the main most important thing to get with Raw.  And, even exposure can be adjusted several stops in Raw. You need to nail focus, however.

"I’ve been practicing with the auto mode and the P setting and trying to figure out the rest
Need family pictures soon and it’s always taken on the front porch full of white lights"

 

First get a small piece of electrical tape and cover the green square on the mode dial with it.  That way you will not be temped to use it ever again. Matter of fact cover all the auto modes on that side of the dial while you are at it.

When you need an auto setting use P mode. Otherwise stick with Av, Tv and or full manual M mode.  You need to change your file format to Raw. Not jpg, there is almost never a good reason to use jpg anymore. You should make all you adjustment in a good post editor like I suggested in the above post.

Here is how you do this, set average metering. Get there s bit before you intend to take the real shot and make a few test shots. No people or you can have a volunteer step in for a test subject.  Check the settings in the camera and determine which is best.  If you notice the SS is very slow, then you need to employ your tripod.  If DOF isn't enough for a fully sharp photo adjust the Av setting to a smaller f-number. Etc, etc and son on. Shoot Raw format and edit the shots in post.

 

If on the other hand you just set Auto, jpg, and hope for the best, you are probably going to be disappointed.  Been there done that, right?

Nice.  Experiment with post processing.  Shooting black and white with a prime lens, or just one focal length with a zoom, for a whole day is a great exercise.
