How can I change the drag on my fishing rod?

I was told my line kept breaking because my drag was too high but I don’t know how to change it. I have a Zebco 202. Kinda cheap rod but I’m guessing there is still a way to change the drag. I was told there is a ‘star’ shaped thing but the only star i see is the reel itself.
How will you know if you changed the drag? While changing it will the string become looser or what? Any way to tell?

What kind of fishing rod and reel should I get?

We have a salt water pier near us on Galveston bay and I want to get my husband a rod and reel for his birthday. He hasn’t fished in years and they are confusing these days. What is the difference between a baitcast reel and a spinner reel? What kind is usually used for pier fishing in salt water? I don’t want to spend a lot because I don’t know if I can reawaken his interest, but I’m hoping I can.
Thanks for any advice.
