Your knowledge is what is quite basic.
Nothing wrong with that; we're all ignorant.

You just don't know how to ask Emacs well yet.
Learn that better - it's the key to the lock.

* Is the minor mode defined for use globally,
  e.g. defined with :global t?

* If not, is there a globalized version of the
  minor mode (`define-globalized-minor-mode')?

* If not, can you define your own globalized
  version of it, and use that?

* If not, can you turn on the minor mode in mode hooks?

All of these possibilities are covered in the doc.
And the source code defining the mode tells you
more (everything).
