Is there any way I could 'feed' a live currency exchange from a website and embed it on my html website?

Im super noob so if possible, please explain step-by-step

This is not something where the code can simply be written on a post. You'll need to make a front-end which displays data processed from api's like Google Finance.

Try checking out the api documentation at openexchangerates (http://openexchangerates.org/documentation). It's all easy stuff if you understand the API and know how to decode data delivery types like JSON using PHP or Javascript/JQuery.

In "Post a PHP snippet" I posted a fully functional PHP function to convert currencies in real time using Yahoo Finance. It's also good for stocks. The quotes from Yahoo are very accurate.
