Thanks for the replies.
What I am not sure of - and perhaps is the inexperience talking here - is if I enter a name; how does PF3 know to "do" the ATC for the STAR or SID I've entered into the PMDG 777 FMC?
As for the Flight plan - is it the process to have an intersection that is marked "ST" and then enter the remaining intersections the points that make up the "STAR" points? With alt call outs - how do we set Below/Above? For instance, at VHHX, one of the points in the STAR has a below 8000 / above 6000 intersection. (Or Am I complicating this?)
Thanks in advance - as someone that has only flown VFR in a C172... some of this is new to me.

PF3 knows nothing of your FMC.
Sometimes you may have to create 2 fpls one for the sim and one for the FMC. Flying into LOWI for rwy 08 via rw 26 sometimes requires that. But here is fpl from ZJHK to VHHX
FF27 MLT SAMAS SIKOU CHALI CH.
It works both in PF3 and in my INS and is about one hour.
Your initial altitude would be 9,800. Enter DP next to MLT in the wypts adjustments page. Your cruise should be FL240. Enter FL160 next to CHALI and make that ST on the wypt adjustments. CH should be 8,000. Make sure your FAF/FAP in PF3 for VHHX is set to 4,500. Set transition altitude at VHHX to 11,000 and at ZJHK 12,000. This fpl was set up for a landing on rwy 13 at Kai Tak. CH is a published hold so you may be asked to hold there. If so make the necessary procedural turn. Leaving CH descend to 4,500 and turn onto the IGS approach.
