Drip line help

I am new to this sprinkler stuff. I have a 1/2 drip line rubbing through my landscape plants in front of my house. I would like to add additional lines off of this. I would like to get water to planters by front door as well as to flower boxes on house. Not sure how to do this. If I cut into tubing, what kind of connector do I use (T-connector maybe?) I also do not am want the additional water lines to be so big maybe like 10-32 or something like that? Not sure what I need. Thanks for any help y'all can give

You don't get to scrimp on tubing size. It takes the (larger than) half-inch stuff to supply the water, with fittings made especially for it, no clamping required, and smaller 1/4-inch "spaghetti" tubing to feed individual plants and containers. The interface between the two tubing sizes is usually by way of "emitters" that are individually "punched into" the larger tubing.
