Default Bike maintenance question

Hi folks... I know next to nothing about bicycle maintenance, so this
should be a very basic question... what is wrong with my bike if it is
really difficult to shift speeds and when I try to it keeps making
that awful buzzing/clacking sound? I am a pretty quick learner... how
can I fix this myself without having to go to (and thus pay) a
mechanic?
thanks!

Read the following instructions and have a twiddle. Good luck.
