When formatting a page for columns, the columns start at the very top of the page, messing up what I have already typed. How to have a paragraph or two on my page and then start the columns below my text on the same page

You can insert a section break and have 1+ columns in the new section, then break again and go back to 1.

It's perhaps worth mentioning that you cannot insert section breaks: there is no such thing in LibreOffice.

What Microsoft Word calls its "sections" are indeed actually section breaks, so you would need to insert two "sections" in Word to achieve the 1-2-1 arrangement of columns as implied here. But a section in LibreOffice Writer is what it says it is: a section, not a section break. So to achieve a 1-2-1 arrangement you make one insertion of a two-column section within an otherwise single-column document: you don't "break again".
