Summoners give orders to the champions through their minds, although they don't need to think about every single step for that action. For example, they can give the order to move to a certain area or perform a certain skill, but it's up to the champion "how" to do that. Also, summoners can share vision, that's why we can see our teammates and minions.

The summoner is not in absolute control, but have no doubt that the champion is obeying the summoner's commands to the very best of his or her abilities. Where they move to, who they attack, and how they use their abilities are decided by summoner's alone. Champions have no say in the matter, while the summoner has the final call on everything.

Thus, a summoner's skill comes from how well he or she is able to work well with a certain champion. For instance, one might show a deep understanding of the skills of LeBlanc, all the while being utterly clueless about how to use Swain's powers correctly.

Therefore, one can judge a summoner's skill by why he chooses his champions and how well he fights with them. A truly skilled summoners uses champions that mesh both his own ambitions and his own skills, while not-so-skilled summoners fail to fully utilize a champions natural talents.

What about the JoJ that said champions didn't start with all there skills because the summoners were still getting used to and becoming in tune with there Champion?

I feel like that implies that Summoners do control the how.
