    DR and Weapon Enhancement Bonus

    I'm trying to help my group figure out how to create certain weapons and actions correctly for a Pathfinder 1E game, but I've run into a bit of a wall as I'm still new at this and was hoping someone would be able to help.

    I'd like to create a were creature for a PC to fight. How do I represent DR 5/silver? Can this be done for PCs? Can this be done for NPCs? Can this be done for Monsters? (Whats the difference?)
    The PC is a fighter wielding a +3 steel sword. How can the ability to overcome damage reduction based on the enhancement bonus be represented?
    How do I create the item so that the action is automatically set up correctly when given to a player?


    I've tried reading the PDF, but that seems more 5E focused. I've tried reading the User Guides on the wiki, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it.

    I've created a local test campaign that is currently empty so I can test it all in isolation.https://19216811.cam/ https://1921681001.id/

    That is actually indeed as in 5e

    Do you know how to use effects? The effect here would be DR: 5 silver Do you play PF1 instead of 3.5e? (because of the damage reduction overcoming by enhancement) Whether or not you overcome a DR is determined by the damage types So, just add the damage types you have

    Here's the wiki section on effects in PF 1E:
