That's a tall request.  I guess you should start with the OpenSWAN wiki
and start reading...


What you're probably looking for is in the "how to configure" section:


Start with the basic tutorial and work your way in.


I wouldn't go near advanced topics like Opportunistic Encryption and the
like until you have at least one functioning tunnel up and tested.

Paul and Ken have also published a book:

Openswan: Building and Integrating Virtual Private Networks

You can get it from several book sellers.
