Now whats next after I do that? The blog I need help with is gsmroleplayers.wordpress.com.

The difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org (self-hosted) sites. You would have to self-host a wordpress.ORG installation on a third-party hosting service such as bluehost, dreamhost, etc., in order to use bbPress.
