Automatically insert transitions

I am new to Premiere Pro CS4 and have gone through some tutorials but have not been able to find the answer to a question I have. How do I create a custom template (a pointer to a good tutorial would be great) and is it possible to have a transition inserted automatically between each clip in the timeline or must that be done manually? Thank you.
