I recently acquired the ship but I don't play DD's often so I'm out of my element. Any tips?

Shoot fast, don't miss, don't die.

I've just started using it, and it's kind of meh. Not great, but also not bad. I would recommend not pushing and sitting on caps. You might raid the caps and try to bully a capping DD, but don't sit there yourself. The concealment is worse than lots of the other DDs at the tier, certainly worse than the ones who are going to try for early caps, and you can't take the hits forever or pop smoke and run. 

I recommend either pushing up behind the DDs and just ahead of the cruisers, or doing hit and run attacks with as much cover as you can, and using speed boost to run away if you get focused. Also don't use MBRB until you're locked on target and getting hits, preferably broadside at close enough range that you'll not miss even if your target jukes.

Also remember than unlike the other gunboat DDs, you have effective torpedoes and a slight stealth torping margin. I'm finding that I forget that a lot, because at that tier in that class I mostly play American DDs with torpedoes I can't use until after I've already spotted and opened up with guns.

Siroco is a hybrid Destroyer that trades the Smoke Generator for a Main Battery Reload Booster.

It's just slightly under the stats of a Gremy, so in skilled DD Main hands, it's a beast.

For a Novice, you will get crushed by not stealth torpedoing and not knowing when to stop shooting the guns.

This - we all need to know when to shut up, and a key skill with French DDs is knowing when to go stealthy.
