How to add custom fields to products?

Hi, I'm fairly new to Shopify but have had 15 years experience using CMS such as Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla and others. 

I'm struggling to figure out how custom fields work; they certainly don't appear to work the way I expect them to!

So my question is how to add a custom field(s) to products that can be edited in the product page, and also be imported via CSV along with the other product data (there will be up to 2,000 products to add in this project so this is pretty important).

The apps I've tried so far require editing of the custom fields in a separate admin screen, which I find inefficient and slow.
