A pad is just a sustained sound. Think of it as you do any other sound and you’ll get how to use them. A subdued pad can fill space and add thickness. Some of the more bright sounding or rhythmic ones can be one of the main instruments. It’s not much different than using a lead, just that you generally play chords rather than single notes
