I went to the Lenovo's site and it's so confusing, there are multiple options for everything. For example, going under "Networking: Wireless Lan" there are 7 choices, ranging from Intel Wireless LAN to Thinkpad Wireless Lan...
How do I know which to download and is there an easier way? I wouldn't want to install the wrong drivers or miss out on some.
Is it the ThinkVantage System Update?
What about the Lenovo Service Bridge? How does that work?
Yup! Don't bother with the LSB, the only Lenovo software I download on my machines alongside the drivers is Lenovo Power Manager since you can do some pretty nifty stuff with it, such as set custom charge thresholds.

Speaking of charge threshold, you can stop the battery from being charged once it reaches a certain threshold? That way, you can keep the battery in the unit all the time and keep the unit plugged in and it won't ruin the battery quickly?
On one of my previous laptop, I kept it plugged in all the time with the battery, and the battery quickly lost capacity. So now I tend to take out the battery when I want to use the laptop as a desktop. But it's such a hassle.

Yes. Plenty of advice on "how to" along with suggested thresholds on this forum.

This was supposed to safe battery life, according to Lenovo.
2) <<For completeness only>>:
For Windows 10, there is this newer "Lenovo Settings" found in Windows 10 Store that does the same thing:
