I am fairly new to Revit and wish to make an exterior wall material out of Hardie Panel/ Fiber Cement Board panels, but can't find a way to do that. At this point, it doesn't have to be structural- I just want to use the paint tool to apply the look of the material on the outside of my building (or whatever is easiest). 

Fiber cement board panels are not a default material in my Revit materials library. How can I create a fiber cement board material or where can I go to get one?

Hardie boards can be ship lap or flat panel.  For shiplap, just use a wood shiplap material.  For flat panel, the board just has a thickness and a color..... you can handle that I'm sure.

Sounds simple enough, but again there's still a lot I've yet to learn- are you saying just use a generic shiplap/panel material, or to custom make the boards/panels as a component/family/material? I'm not quite sure how I would do what you suggest.

Certain 3D elements you just don't model in Revit because it will overwhelm the model.  Basically, you don't model materials with like 1/2" variation in texture.  Instead, you use materials with a 'bump' factor that give the illusion of depth.  Elements that we only use materials on include shiplap siding, shingles, bricks, blocks, standing seam roof and materials that are 'pierced' like chain-link fence.
