IMHO the question is:

What would you expect to see, if you press on [Help] in any dialog?

That parts obvisious belong in Help, the rest can go to Guide.
So your tabel about the import matcher states was long missing in Help.

Sections about "How to migrate between Q* and GC",
"Tips to import bank statements",
"How to split a years book" for whatever purpose...
could fill the data exchange chapter of the Guide.
