    How do OCR type up their questions and get them into pdf formats like documents on this page? http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications...nts/index.html

    I do have ways of typing mathematical symbols on my pc, but I specifically like the font like shape of integration sign etc.

    They might not use Latex, but it's pretty standard to use Latex. There are plenty of maths typesetters around and it doesn't really matter that much what you use, but Latex is used on TSR and lots of other places, and you can change the font to something you like.

    I have no idea what to do with latex ;/. I know it works on TSR, but I've installed all this mixtec and ghostscript stuff on my pc, but I have no idea at all how to go about creating a document.

    I have no idea what Ghostscript is. I only use Miktex to write my latex documents. There are hundreds of tutorials on the web. Here are a couple. The first I just got from a google search, the second is one I use (but by no means comprehensive). You can find many more tutorials with google.
