This tutorial looks very detailed and should answer most of your questions: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-a-pull-request-on-github <https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-a-pull-request-on-github>

If you’re not very comfortable with, or don’t want to use command line, there are standalone GUI applications that support working with github as well as IDE and editor integrations that might help.
