Guides already exist for installing packages on all the major distributions.
If you have a specific question you ought to ask it.

Firstly, you dont install RPM/YUM packages on ubuntu... They are designed for RedHat based distro's.

The information you are looking for, is available as part of the documentation of any distro worth its salt..

Failing that, google it.
