Are you wanting specific things which can be edited / added to the file?
If you just want to know how to open the file for editing, use nano -w /etc/hosts
Press F2 or CTRL + X to save / close

or if you have pico instead use pico. Or Vi is a good way to go. If you are really old school you would tend to use EMACS.

Pico and Nano are virtually the same thing just with different names ...

Obviously, all of the above solutions are assuming you have SSH and Root access.
