Default Sheet designing

Can anyone tell me if there is a website to go to learn how to create my own sheet designs?

I want to base it off of my NPC 6x4 sheet but add a few other things such as those fantastic data from the gm Control sheet as well.

If there is no place then what kind of code does it use to help me dissect it?

For GCA4, sheets are written in VBScript. Beyond looking at existing sheets for examples, and asking questions around here, your best bet is probably these links:

Since you make mention of the GMCS, I'd probably start by opening up the gm control sheet.gcs in a decent text editor* and talking a look at its code.

* If you don't already have a programming editor of some kind, you'll need one. Windows: Notepad2 or Notepad++ are good and free text editors which will work. Cross-platform: Sublime Text 2 is also good, but nagware. Whatever you do, do not use Notepad or Wordpad (or their equivalents in other OSes).
