Yes, Network Manager comes with nmcli, so you can control it from
command line. For using system settings you might want to
check /usr/share/doc/network-manager/README.Debian.

All you need is to read the documentation and adjust setup to your
needs. There is no one default setup which would fit all.

Anyway this is really OT in this thread (if I exclude the fact that FUD
against NM is almost same widespread as against systemd).
