Man pages are not part of the base installation (from 7 floppies).
You have to download and install doc/man-db package + several others to
satisfy dependencies (groff most notably).

You would have to edit several files to fill them with your actual
connection parameters: /etc/ppp.chatscript /etc/ppp.options_out and
/etc/ppp/pap-secrets (if you have to use PAP for authentication).

That's just a pointer for a debian-specific part, read general Linux
information on how to setup PPP from HOWTO's, manpages, etc.

Good luck.
