When you want to know what commande hides behind a keychoard, you can
use C-h k

Type C-h k C-x C-f 

and see what command is used to find a file and edit it.  

You can then insert a form using this command in your ~/.emacs, such

  (find-file "~/.emacs")

The opposite of C-h k is C-h w which tells you where (to which
keychoards) a command is bound.  For example, C-h w find-file RET
displays in the minibuffer:
find-file is on <open>, C-x C-f, <menu-bar> <file> <new-file>
