Perhaps post a link or an attachment of your .obj (depending on size) and give

There are some videos about basic POV-Ray usage on Youtube, and there are plenty
of example scenes, and (in windows) the drop-down Insert menu in the editor to
paste in snippets of useful code.
As with everything, pick some very simple task as your goal, and then
progressively add levels of complexity.

Welcome to the POV-Ray new user club  ;)

Try out some simple scenes, and post your full test scene and the problems
you're having, and we can get you pointed in the right direction.
