If your really new to adding mods it can be confusing, but now days it is MUCH easier than it used to be. Just make sure your using the correct version of mods for the version of mincraft you are using. First thing would prolly be just to get Forge in stalled. Download mincraftforge installer and start up the game with just that. Then get Mocreatures and CMS for the same version of minecraft.
A couple warnings though. Mocreatures won't work with the newest mincecraft. Make sure you set up a minecraft profile with forge installed using Mincraft version 1.7.2. If you need any help, just let me know.
I do believe I have it now! I guess the important part I was missing was that it didn't work on the newest and to make a new profile...hehe...thanks so much though!
