Start with bass and kick to get basic rythm/feel, then add repeating highhat to keep tempo, and there you have a very basic groove. Then add fills and crashes to taste.
For final target, yes. I've tried some amount, but what I create myself, they sound boring, and like my drummer friend says about my fills 'that sounds more like an mistake than fill'

Looking name of the pattern and dragging that pattern from file manager to track is easier (see thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15686 )
