Okay so I have my graf, now what do I do? I have it chosen with colors and letters. But starting this out like reading a crochet pattern looked very difficult. It gave me the size to so do I work any crochet stitch I want ? And do I work side to side and when it says color with the number does that mean how many stitches I do?

Welcome! Smile
The stitch to use, if you're in the US, is a single crochet. if you use any other stitch (such as a double crochet), your graphghan will turn out skewed. The only exception is if you choose certain stitches, such as Tunisian, in which case you'd work Tunisian.
The graph is like any other crochet graph, worked side to side, first on one side, then returning the other way.
I'm not sure what you're referring to about "color with the number." If you're looking at a graph, you will see, perhaps, 3 of the squares have a blue, so then you'd work 3 stitches in blue. If you're following a word pattern, that's different. It tells you how many stitches to work of each color, in order.
