You need to go into the User CP (control panel) and edit your Avatar. You'll see the User CP dropdown menu right above the "post reply" button just above your post. Click it once and go to where it says "edit avatar." You can upload your picture there.
For what you're talking about, Nana, you go to the normal window that you would type your reply message in...or an original post if you are starting a new thread. There is a paperclip next to a smiley face. If you roll your mouse over the paperclip it it will say "attachments." Click on it and it'll bring up another window where you can hit the "browse" button and find the image on your computer where you saved the file. Choose the image by clicking on it, then you'll be back at the window where you clicked "browse." Now click "upload." Your image will appear on your post once you click on submit reply.
Also, In the same window you found the paperclip, there is a little button that looks like a mountain and sky "scene." If you found the image you want to include in your post online you can right click on the image, scroll down to "copy image url" and click on it. Then come back to the window that has the mountain and sky button, click on it, and then right click on the white box, and scroll down to "paste."
