Magneto by itself has many features built into it and thus reduces the need for you to add any extensions. However there are many extensions available for you to install into Magento to enhance the user experience. Furthermore if you wish for a truly unique website or custom functionality it is likely you will need the assistance of a Magento Web developer.
The method in which you can edit the Google Map on your template is different on different installations of Magento. For example on some installations of Magento there is already an option in the CMS Static Block menu like Map Content. Thus in this case you can simply edit this file called Map Content and replace the new code obtained from Google (described later). It is possible that in some cases that you do not have any such option listed of Map Content; in such a case you need to created a static block by the name Map Content and link this at the appropriate place. (for example it can be linked on the contact us page).
In order to change the location you can go to the website http://maps.google.com and then type your location into the search field and press enter. Your new location will load on the map and you can then obtain the link icon by hitting the past HTML to embed section. Once the new link has been obtained you can copy this new link and replace your Map Content in your static block described above with the new content.
Thus you now have edited the Google map on your Magento installation.
