Z Trigger Height / Z offset - I don't get it

After a small accident with my BTT SKR Mini E3 board where I accidently burnt out a mosfet I decided to try embracing the world of RepRap I have managed to get the setup to the point where I can print but I'm having huge issues with the Z height.
Coming from Marlin I was initially a bit confused as to Z Offset and how this works in RepRap the problem I am having is no matter how many times I try guides such as https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Test_and_calibrate_the_Z_probe]When I start a print I always have to start rapidly baby stepping the Z offset.
I'm still not convinced I really understand Z Trigger height and if I still need a Z offset? Also my trigger height seems to be higher than what the guides seem to suggest mines comes up as approx 3mm
I have mild Aspergers so sometimes I cannot see the obvious so please do not worry about offending me I'm quite happy having anything explained to me as you would a child lol - If anyone has good Ender 5 configs I can pinch I'd be very grateful or any suggestions as to the many mistakes I've no doubt made!
Printer:: Creality Ender 5 Pro (Cartesian)

Hi and Welcome,
Just to help be get my bearings can you show me what references to Z Offset you are talking about.
Then I will better be able to discuss things.
