First off, this should be in the Q&A Forum, not in WIP forum.

As for AO, you need to turn it on in the WORLD settings and then just start playing with the settings to get results that you want.

You will also need to turn on Raytracing in the render options to make it work.


Also, when using AO it’s best to use it with other lights to get the most out of it realism wise. Though be prepared for a rendertime a bit longer then one without AO.
