Totally confused. Spent hours trying various ways to do it, without success; so now appealing for help.

I have a static front page. comments are closed.
In my first listed category titled 'Page 2: Your Scooter Wish-list' I want the entry to be static. (I can't see any way to stipulate that specifically; currently it's a post, but maybe it should be a page?).
I want that entry to link to a hidden page (for a link, I've used 'If you’re interested in bringing the scooter of your dreams to life, click HERE' as i've never been able to use images as links - they always come us as 'page not found').
I don't want the hidden page to appear in the category list or anywhere else. I only want readers to access it through that particular link. Then i want to add other posts in there.
I've tried making the first entry in that 'hidden' category either a page or a post. It was okay to start with as a post 'uncategorized.' But when i've tried to add a 2nd post to it the trouble has started; i can't get the 2nd post to appear in the hidden area.
When i've tried it as a page with subsequent page referring to it as parent, it comes up as a 'comment' but still does not list in that hidden area.
There doesn't seem to be a way to make 'uncategorized' a default area for posts (ie using OPTIONS WRITING), and if i name the default category, then its name appears in the category list (so then it's no longer a hidden area).
in OPTIONS READING I have kept POSTS PAGE as '- SELECT -'
Any coherent advice would be most welcome.
Thanks (in anticipation of now discovering probably a blatantly obvious and basic tenet of wordpressing that i've totally overlooked), Colin
