I would honestly recommend watching some YouTube videos on how to cover a cake in fondant. Don't just watch one or two. Watch a bunch! That way you can figure out the method that works the best for you!

It's just practice. You keep opening it up at the bottom to deal with pleats. I think there is a free craftsy class you could watch.

Yes! Craftsy has a really good free class called Basic Fondant Techniques.  The instructor, Elisa Strauss, goes into great detail on how to cover round AND square cakes with fondant.  She also talks on how to avoid that "pleat" that you're describing.
