Just about any Oyster machine(e.g. atthe Tube etc) should be able to spit out a new card as well as topping up a pay as you go. Its also possible to just use a standard bank card that can do contactless on tubes and busses instead if you are only in London for the day, make sure you touch in AND out on the tube whichever way you pay.

Most tube stops have automatic gates (look for the red / green markers as you walk towards them so you know which way is in and out). You touch an Oyster or bank card on the round yellow reader to have the gate open to let you in or out. Some stops just have the reader and no gates, but you still need to use it on the way in and out or the system assumes you took the most expensive trip possible and bills you the max ammount. £10-15 should be enough, the total cost for a day of travel ends up getting capped.

Lots more detail including pictures of the readers, prices, how to buy, alternatives to a physical Oyster card etc here ...
