place icon in the dock

I have read several how to's about placing an icon for google and for gmail in the dock or tool bar on my macbook pro laptop. I have google in safari but, I would like to just click on the icon in the dock.
First I do not have google in Finder like everyone tells me. (that I can find anyway)
Second I'm not the greatest computer wizard, so you must explain what I need to do.
Thank You I hope someone can help me. water steps

It's means you can't do it in one step.

If you can't do what the article says, keep it handy for when you have your local support over.
