Hi, wisam, and welcome to LQ.

There are many different varieties of Linux, called distributions ("distros"). See here for some guidelines on how to choose a distro:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ro-4175623119/

The installation instructions for one of the distros, Linux Mint, are here:

Yes. And welcome.

Assuming you are starting with a beginner-friendly distro like Ubuntu, here is one: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation

You will need the installation image on USB stick or DVD first. I'd recommend the former because the images are getting too big and using a DVD±RW is very slow. If you are still on Windows then you can try Etcher to make your USB stick. You can download the installation image itself via HTTPS or Torrent. Torrent will be faster, but both are here: http://releases.ubuntu.com/18.04/

Edit: Linux Mint is a good choice for beginners too.

No, sorry, there are no installation tutorials for Linux. I guess the world just overlooked it.

There are many installation tutorials. Try a web search for "[distro name] tutorial."

Most major distros include installation guides on their websites, and YouTube is full of tutorials, some good, some, well, not so good.
