I am so confused! I'll be on a site and glance at the url. I'll see stuff like "http://www.somesite.com/whatever/whatever.htm?&=whatever/dude&guy="
what the heck does that mean and how do I make "?" stuff?

It's just passing parameters to the file. Normally used for server side eg. PHP, but can be done on html files with Javascript (http://javascript.about.com/library/blqs.htm).

The stuff after the question mark is commonly refered to as the query string in the URL.
