Using the "Tags & Ratings" module (and tags in general)

I'm a long-time user, and I love this app. But I am baffled about the PF 8 "Tags & Ratings" module, as well as the new way tags work and are manipulated in the interface.

I have added the "Tags" module to the left side of Path Finder. For reasons I don't understand, there are several tag names listed in this area now. I can click to easily search for files that have that tag. Great! BUT HOW DO I ADD OTHER FREQUENTLY USED TAGS TO THIS LIST?

In a related question, Path Finder used to allow renaming of a color label like "Red" in its options. I had earlier called Red "Key" (for key files). Now all of my labels are unchangeable. HOW DO I RENAME THESE OLD LABELS?

In general, the use of tags, particularly since I used them in prior versions of Path Finder, are currently a completely unintuitive and undocumented mess. We need some clarity, please.
