Just sign in, pop out the side menu and click "OKport" or the link to your OKport is at the top of your Account page.
The Hero slideshow on the home page is comprised of the 10 latest Hero uploads. So your shot goes into that mix as soon as you upload it. It falls out of that mix when 10 people upload Hero images after you.
A hotlist is a place where you can store other folks' images that you're inspired by. Other people visiting your OKport can see your hotlist by clicking the hotlist link underneath your info.
Notices are Casting Calls and Travel Notices. To make one, sign in and go to "Notices" via the popout, side menu. The Notices page is where you create and manage your Notices.
