first, we (the latex project) are really not good people to ask for
help ... in general.  we're here to think about the future, not the
details of getting things done today.  immediate help is best got via
one of the sources mentioned in

second, since you don't tell us which style of computer you're using,
it's not immediately clear where to start.

has listings of "distributions" (complete tex and latex systems) that
are what you need, to start with.  get used to the basic system before
branching out to use of the huge masses of contributed material or our
experimental stuff.  (any distribution will give you base and required
in total anyway.)
