I would start here:  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Confederate_Army%2C_United_States_Civil_War and find the appropriate state and then regiment for your profile, the one in question looks like he belongs in Mississippi, in the 34th regiment. 

To add a category, click the category button on the edit page and start typing to find the correct category :

To add a sticker for your veteran you can use https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:US_Civil_War

Hope that helps, I'm not great at explaining things. 

Edited to add : Specifically for William it appears to me his sticker should look like this

{{US Civil War

| enlisted = 18 March 1862

| mustered = March 1865

| side = CSA

| regiment flag = Civil_War_Flags-28.jpg 

| regiment name = 34th Regiment 

| rank = Sgt

|unit=34th Regiment, Mississippi Infantry}}

and he should be in the category [[Category: 34th Regiment, Mississippi Infantry, United States Civil War]] and maybe the [[Category:Freemasonry]] as well, since his obit there mentions being a member of a masonic lodge.
