I believe www.pdftex.org (which aliases to http://www.tug.org/ 
applications/pdftex/ ) should answer your questions in detail.

The short version is just use pdflatex at the command prompt --- it's  
installed by most LaTeX distributions.

If the language and font access become issues you may want to try XeTeX:


which also gets one to a pdf using xdvipdfmx on Windows/Linux which  
you may want to look into as well.
