Need Help writing a Star Trek themed Arduino code

Hey Folks. I really need help  writing an arduino code to control a star trek model i'm working on. I don't really understand programming but I'd really like if anyone can help out. The code is supposed to use 2 momentary switches. When the main switch is pushed it will activate some leds in sequence, the last 2 will fade on one after the other in the same manner, this will be called the 'startup mode'. Then when the second momentary switch is pushed (while the main is on) it will 'switch modes' and the 2 leds that faded on one after the other initially will now fade off or ramp down at the exact same time then 2 more leds will fade on or 'ramp up' in their place at the exact same time. Finally, when the button is pushed again it will simply switch back. A video demo shows what im talking about with some very small differences. Any help would be appreciated!
This video below shows what Im trying to do. Please see from time frame 0:35 to 0:54 which shows the 'start up sequence' described above.
And one more showing the actual model i'll be working on and the startup sequence with the movie timing.
