Passing a bill in Australian Parliament

The thing I know about is that a Bill has to be agreed on for it to be moved into the Senate. I also know that the Speaker calls the members to speak for their argument on the bill, so that no doesn’t get time to speak and nobody is interrupting someone else. The Clerk tells the members the rules of the house before they get started with the Bill so everyone knows how to act while its happening. Those are the things I know as a fact with passing a bill but I understand that the Speaker keeps the house following the right structure and rules, and that everyone gets a fair say in if the bill should be passed. These are the things I know but I have a question about the process as well. What happens if a member breaks the Clerks rules? Will they be forced to leave? These are the things I know about passing a bill in Australian parliament.
