Hey how do i upload a pic and put it on a characters page?

It's actually quite simple, here's a stepwise plan:
  1. Find a suitable screenshot (Wikipedia is a best source, AnimeGalleries and similar sites are ok too).
  2. Scale it down if it's too big (having around 500px is more than enough), do not crop unless it's the only way.
  3. Go to Special:Upload, browse to select your file, rename it well ("Sharingan_Mangekyo_Itachi.jpg" is very good, "OMGWTFBBQ20070807.JPG" is not).
  4. Choose the license (mostly it will be "tv screenshot" if it's a usual screencap, "video screenshot" if it's a DVD screencap, or "movie screenshot" if it's from a movie).
  5. Click on upload. Then click on edit and add a so called "fair use rationale" like this one (taken from Image:Sakura Shippuden.jpg):
{{Fair use rationale
	| Description       = Low resolution screenshot with [[Sakura Haruno]] as a [[chunin]]
	| Source            = [ Naruto Shippūden episode 1]
	| Portion           = Naruto Shippūden series by Masashi Kishimoto
	| Purpose           = illustration of the depicted character
	| Resolution        = reduced to 500 px wide
	| Replaceability    = only by a similar screenshot with the same license status
6.   Go to the character page and write something like this in the beginning:
[[Image:Your Image Name.jpg|thumb|250px|right|Named Character doing stuff]]
