How do I become federated with other instances?

I am running an instance and I want to specifically connect with a handful of other instances that share interests. So that then we can see the feed of each other on our own instance’s timeline. How do I do this exactly? In the settings under Moderation > Federation I see where I can block certain instances but how do I set certain instances to automatically connect to? Do I need to send something to those instance admins and do they need to send something to me?

To be more specific; I want to have the local feed of another instance show up on the federated feed of my instance.

I suggest adding some relays. This will cause all the posts from remote instances to show up in your federated timeline. A big list of relays is here: ActivityRelay Instances — fediverse network
