Are you using the Librarian Interface to build your collection?If not, I
recommend that you do.

PDf files: if you want greenstone to convert them to html and index all
the text, use PDFPlug. If you just want them treated like a binary file,
with no extraction done, use 'UnknownPlug -process_exp .pdf$
Note you will need to run the Librarian Interface in Library Systems
Specialist or Expert mode to do this. (in GLI, File->Preferences->Mode).
TIFF files: ImagePlug
MP3 files: MP3Plug
For all plugins, there are many options. If you select a plugin in your
plugins list, and click "configure plugin", then you get a list of
options. moving the mouse pointer over the option names displays a
tooltip describing each option.

what do you mean? have you entered the metadata in the Librarian
Interface? or have you created a metadata.xml file? Can you see the
metadata in the Librarian Interface? Can you see the metadata in the
Greenstone collection? What do you mean by "I can't find my records"?
