Hello,

The "easiest" way would be to find a video template that already has many similar attributes, and then you can just replace your video clips in the template:

"...as well as putting in labeling at certain points"

They are title templates. There are many tutorials about them:

Your video example was also shot with a green screen background, which was replaced with backgrounds:

"...are adding things coming in from different directions."

A lot of them are overlays (that may have built in motion), or video clips that use motion keyframes. You just need to learn how to use keyframes to create motion. There are many resources on that:

Good luck!
