For each Vendor Payment we must first create a Bill and then Pay

Er, ... no.
Before you create any bill (duck or no duck) enter all your vendor data:
name, address, whatever. Do this for all your vendors. Also do it for any
customer/client who you bill for revenue.
Once you have those set up you can enter a new bill or invoice, post them,
then pay the bill. Equivalent work flow for customers/clients. Look at the
Business -> Customer and -> Vendor menus.
In the chart of accounts under say... Expenses > Office Supplies
we create sub accounts for each Office supply vendor...
Since you want to track each vendor, then yes. E.g., under Expenses:Office
Supplies:Staples or Expenses:Office Supplies:Office Depot. You'd do the same
thing for insurnace; e.g., Insurance:Employee Health, Insurance:Auto, etc.
Under Business -> Vendor -> New Vendor enter all your office suppliers.
When you receive a bill from each, enter it via Business -> Vendor -> new
bill. Then post it. It goes to Accounts Payable.
When you want to pay the bill go to Business -> Vendor -> Process payment.
Than from the check register just assign that payment to that account...
When you pay the bill
