Well, the quote link is precisely the manual :)

That said, if you can pin point sections that could be improve, please send
your suggestions to the mailing list, we should never stop working on the fine
manual :)

Are you asking for example of use cases of Emacs-Guix?

Sure, for instance you can can list your installed packages, click on a package
to display it's details, install other outputs from there, display the graphs,

You can list generations and "diff" them!  (One of my favourite feats!)
Then you can switch and delete generations.

There are helper functions for development, such as a "build-log-mode" to
navigate the build phase outputs (e.g. you jump from the "configure phase" to
the "build phase"), you can even toggle-fold the phase outputs.

And so much more!
Emacs-Guix has a very complete manual:
