Yes, well, YouTube tutorial quality varies from excellent to abysmal, maybe you were trying to follow one of the less helpful ones. If you want to learn about rigging (in general, not specifically rigging characters) then study Nathan Vegdahl’sHumane Rigging.
Now, if all you want to do is just rig one character (shortsighted, but it’s your life) then drop by either the Tutorials, Tips and Tricks subforum and look around to see what experienced Blender Artists recommend, or, better still, go to the Support>>Rigging and Animation subforum and ask.
If you notice, this is the Modeling subforum. This is where people who know a lot about modeling hang out to ask and answer questions. Riggers and Animators have their own little corner of Blender Artists, and it ain’t here. Blender Artists has even put up a subforum for people soliciting Volunteer Work, which is what you were asking for in your first post: someone to do something for you and not get paid. Good luck with that, by the way. If you decide to go that route, I’d suggest you figure out a more persuasive argument than “credits” in a game that, as TidyPachiderm pointed out, no one will ever see but you, the volunteer, and a couple of your friends.
