There are a few different ways to do it depending on what device (if any) you will use.

Hmm well I didn't quite see all that there is to it. You must admit that if you try to describe a simplified version to someone then they might think you've gone mad. I do like the outdoors having been a scout for most my life. I might give it a shot, see what it's like. You guys use the website stated above to find coordinates?
If you have a smartphone you can use an app. For android you have a few options
I believe are also apps for other major platforms (I have a HTC so I don't know)
If you have a full GPS device (e.g. a Garmin eTrex) you will can download the coordinates from the site direct to your device. Simply search for a cache and follow the links.
Otherwise you could just look at the coordinates and mark them on a map (you can get conversion from Longitude and Latitude to OS Grid references etc. )
In order to get started you will need a free account at http://www.geocaching.com/ . This will allow you to log and place caches as well as just view information. To start geocaching search for a cache from the main page (or search in the smartphone app if using one instead) and select it. You can then find the information you need and download it as necessary.
Once you have found a cache you need to log it by going online (or opening the app) selecting the cache again and clicking the link to post a log.
Have fun !
There are lots of official videos to get you started : http://www.geocaching.com/videos/default.aspx
