Thanks in advance

Wiring diagrams for 3-way switches are everywhere. There's probably fifty or so web sites, plus the diagrams are probably in every home wiring book every printed, and most home centers give away free pamphlets with the diagrams. Here's just one web site to get you started, with a diagram that seems to match the situation that you described.

If you're going to be doing as much electrical work as it seems like you are, buy and read thoroughly a few good home wiring books.
