procedurals are not any harder to use than "normal" (non-procedure) render nodes. basically what you do is create a procedural render node, tweak the attributes to your need, connect it to the correct place in your shading network.

lets say you want to connect a marble texture to the color of a lambert material. you would create the marble render node (in 3d textures) and connect it by draggingh with the default (ctrl-mmb) from marble to lambert. now you have successfully created a material that has procedural components.

here is a list of some procedural render nodes:
2d:
  • Fractal
  • Mountain
  • Noise
3d: basically every 3d texture is procedural
  • Brownian
  • Leather
  • Marble
  • Solid Fractal
  • ...


p.s.: the manual is helpful in learning how to do stuff - look in rendering of "using maya"
