Mapping Postal/Zip Codes

Good day all,

I am fairly new to ArcGIS and am still getting myself acquainted with all of it's intricacies. I am attempting to create a project through which I can input a list of either American zip codes or Canadian postal codes, and the specific polygon that defines that area would be highlighted.

How specifically do I go from a simple data table (or excel sheet) with postal codes into this visual representation? Does this have to be done in ArcGIS Pro or can it be done in ArcMap? This feels like it should be trivial, but I haven't had any luck with it.

If it's any help, I'm trying to do exactly this but for Canada: ZIP Lookup 

Thanks in advance.

The link is to Tapestry, which costs extra and won't work on a lot of the forum users systems (I believe it is trying to find my zip through my nasty firewall--not going to happen). You need to find a downloadable or ArcGIS online zipcode polygon file to start with.
