1. Packages have nothing to do with notebooks.  You do not need to use 
the Front End to write packages.  You only need a plain text editor.

2. You have already asked this question, and received detailed replies 
with pointers to the documentation. [1]  Instead of demanding that 
someone write a complete tutorial on the exact workflow that you want to 
use, how about reading those doc pages, and asking *specific* questions 
about the things that you did not understand?
