Decap...cap...size...expand...bell...charge...seat...crimp

That is the basic sequence of operations for reloading.

Decap and size are often performed as one operation/one die. Sometimes the same die will decap, size and expand in one die, with belling performed at another station.

It does not matter significantly what brand name is on the reloading machine, as it is only a jig for holding the dies and cases. On a 4-hole plate, you will leave one empty. I usually fill the #3 position with a powder dropper, when loading pistol cartridges. The die in this station is any non-shaping die with a hole through the top. That is my method, but I have seen other methods used to fill the "empty" slot.
