Sorry, but why is a non-technical person trying to manage a proxy server?
To answer the question in your subject line "Do I need to be technical to use
squid proxy?", the answer is definitely "no". So long as you can use a
browser, you can use Squid proxy, but if you want to *manage* the proxy,
that's a different matter, and you need to have at least a certain amount of
familiarity with networking concepts and client-server communications.
Maybe it helps to look at your request completely differently - what are you
trying to *achieve* with Squid? Tell us that and we might be able to help you

The barman asks him "Do you want a drink?"
Descartes says "I think not," and disappears.
