Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

If you have removed the flame shield above the burners then follow the small diameter aluminum tubing to where it terminates. It's connected to the pilot burner. That's where you put your match while you hold down the dial/button on the gas control valve

I see a small hole that I think is where I am to insert the lighter or match. My lighter won't fit in this hole. I guess I can only use a match? I don't have a match holder to insert the match into this hole.

You have to remove the panel that's above the burners. It should have a couple wing nuts at each end holding it in place
