I am a non-technical user. I use LaTeX to type up stuff and that's it. What I want to do is make posters like from this website. http://www.brian-amberg.de/uni/poster/

I think this gives me a new "class". How can I make it so that when I open TeXShop I can just type in the document class and then make my poster? I am pulling out my hair trying to find how to install this "class"!

have you seen How to create posters using LaTeX – cmhughes Mar 13 '13 at 1:34
just extract/unzip the baposter.tar.bz2 and go to the -> examples ->EECS2011 folder and open poster.tex with TeXshop and typeset. it has baposter.cls file and also guide to baposter. keep the .cls file in the folder where you want to generate the .pdf instead of installing permanently, if you are a non-technical user. – texenthusiast Mar 13 '13 at 1:48
This is mainly a duplicate of How do I add a .sty file to my MacTeX/TeXShop installation. – Alan Munn Mar 13 '13 at 2:04
