In your first mail in this thread you mentioned "the old (2007) Qt4 
book". Is that "Rapid GUI programming with Python and Qt" by Mark 
Summerfield? If yes, chapter 7, "Using Qt Designer" should still work 
with the Qt5 designer. Doesn't it answer your questions?

One small warning about this chapter: converting the .ui files to Python 
code is no longer necessary. The book only knows this technique and 
doesn't explain how to load them at runtime. For that you need the 
documentation on the Riverbank pages.
