How to Setup OpenSSH on Ubuntu server

I am a novice in SSH and linux.

I got a server and I would like to setup openSSH on it. The SSH should listen to port 443 and I would also like it to authenticate using userame and password. However, I would like to add more than one user name to it. Please what setups should I take and how should I go about it.
