Coming from Ubuntu, it may be worth checking out this guide here from Fedora's wiki : Differences to Ubuntu

I don't see your point. It is the same thing.

If you are looking for something similar to synaptic you can use yumex. (sudo dnf install yumex)

If you use Fedora Workstation you can update via Gnome Software application. Alternativly you can install gnome-packagekit-updater or yumex-dnf. If you want command line it's really simple, you just type "dnf upate" to update your system, "dnf install ..." to install package, "dnf remove ..." to remove. If you want more details check documentation

...and if you don't use Gnome?

I'd stay away from Gnome Software as it uses a different database than dnf, and if you plan to use dnf for installing and removing software packages, you end up with one package manager not knowing what the other did. That always caused trouble to me in the past (until I stopped using Gnome Software).

If you don't use Gnome you can use yumex or command line, as I mentioned earlier.

Or Apper (dnf install apper), which is another graphical software management tool.
