    I'm working on a Pages (5.2.2) document with several tables but also some text and images in between.

    But I can't for my life figure out why the tables stay in the same place while I insert some new text above them. I would expect everything to move further down if I do that or press RETURN to shift lines down.
    I know I can move the tables around by dragging them with the mouse but this is a hassle if for instance I want to add some new tables at the beginning of the document.
    Can someone please explain how this works?

    Select the table, and open the Inspector>Format via the View Menu or click on the Format button in the Toolbar. Select the Arrange Tab and choose Stay On Page or Move With Text as required.

    Awesome, thanks!
    Is there a downloadable user manual to be found somewhere?

    No, just the Help menu > Pages Help, which is actually quite good.
