There is not really a set mapping that works with all emulators. You just need to open each emulator and go to its control configuration setting and set each Tankstick button/control to the emulator. The Tankstick is seen as keyboard inputs and works with pretty much a majority of emulators. 

The newer version of the Tankstick has a switch you can change it to either D-input or X-input. You can also buy the new encoder to update to this if you have the older version of the Tankstick.

Which encoder are you using with your Xarcade? The original or new encoder? I just recently bought the new encoder that basically mimics two xbox 360 pads and it is quite nice. It is much more functional and easier to manage.

What is difficult to use? You open the emulator of choice. Look for where the settings are to bind the controls. Then typically you click a control (Let's say "UP") in the emulator setting then you move the joystick on the Tankstick "Up" to bind it. Same with buttons. You choose which button you want mapped to do what control. It is a simple as (1) clicking on the control item and (2) clicking the button on the tankstick you want it mapped to. Repeat step 1 and step 2 until done. Some emulators can be a little more involved, but not by much.

why isnt there software or at least some kind of diagram for bigbox?

There is no diagram because the user sets the controls how he/she wants. In order for my Tankstick to be able to move around in BigBox I had to tell it which button was select, back, and so on. In BigBox here are examples of what I mapped controls and Select/Back to on my Tankstick.
