You may do this using Boolean solids, or by placing daughter volumes to represent the holes. See Sections 2.2 and 4.1 of the Application Developer's Guide.

You write the geometry yourself, in C++, in your detector construction class, and it may be as simple or as complex as you need. See Section 6.1.1.
