Plain and simple, a “stock” is a share in the ownership of a company.
A stock represents a claim on the company's assets and earnings. As you acquire more stocks, your ownership stake in the company becomes greater.
Note: Some times different words like shares, equity, stocks etc. are used. All these words mean the same thing.
A stock is represented by a "stock certificate". This is a piece of paper that is proof of your ownership. However, now-a-days you could also have a “demat” account. This means that there will be no “stock certificates”. Everything will be done though the computer electronically. Selling and buying stocks can be done just by a few clicks.
Now coming to "How to buy Shares"
First of all open a Demat account either with a Bank or a Broker (eg ICICI Bank ; , Sharekhan; , India bulls etc).
Then slowly start investing in IPOs which are relatively safe and give good return on listing. As you go on you will get a feel of market and then you can start investing in secondary market.
Regarding tips, so start watching CNBC TV18, NDTV Profit, CNBC Awaaz and Zee Business. They have very good coverage of stock market, and some of the program discuss stocks in detail where you can even ask questions related to stocks. It helps a lot in deciding where to invest.
Furthermore you can also invest in mutual funds, which donot give as good returns as the market, but the risk component is very less and the returns are quite decent.
