Fedora uses RPM's for installing and manageing software. An RPM file contains the software to be installed and the information where to install it along with any dependcies (other software that needs to be installed), think of it a bit like an OS X .dpkg file.
There is a local database of RPM's installed on your system.
When installing an RPM package in Fedora, it uses yum to check for dependencies and installs them if requiered.
You can also use Fedora's Add/Remove Software from the menu. This will check online repositories of software, and allow you to search and install software.
Here's a beginners guide to the bash shell:
