What I want to do is customize the Post Footer so that it does not display any Social Link Text or the "Sharebar" in the Post Footer but instead displays two columns, the left one being Social Media Links (Twitter / FB / G+) and the right one Related Posts. A good example of what I want is the following Post Footer setup (taken from wpbeginner.com) If it counts for anything I've got YARPP setup for my related posts.

http://on.einstein.is/rIDSLc is a link to a post. I'm currently hiding the footer with a Custom CSS expression, that is .post-footer {display:none;}

You'll need to use a hook to add the two boxes for your social media and related posts. Are you familiar with implementing one?

I know I have to edit some code inside some of template's php files, but not sure which one, where, or what the input should be.

No, not really. To be honest I'm giving up on this whole thing.
