Newbie wants to overwinter..please help!

I was gifted a Tropical Hibiscus in June and it's done beautifully this summer. I wish to attempt to over-winter it, but have no idea where to begin. I have read what I could find here, but much of it is unfamiliar to me.

Just pick it up and bring it in? If not, please specify.

If there is no infestation (that I can see), will I likely have white fly or other problems indoors?

I plan to place it with a southern exposure. Will it need additional lighting?

If you can please give me "Overwintering for Dummies", I'd very much appreciate it!

Thank you.

If you still have questions regarding, feel free to email me. My over wintering count this year will be over 50 tropicals.

Thanks to you both. I think I've seen this thread, but I'll check it out. It's now into the low 40s at night, so I really need to decide if I'm going to be able to manage this.
