Calm down. You seems to be in a lot of hurry. Wait a day or two before asking new questions.

In the AIFP zip-file there is a manual on how to install flightplans using AIFP. Read that file and you are a bit more into the installation.

But again calm down and take a few hours off. We can't help you every other second.

Manual is still the best thing to read, good information, very easy to read.    As suggested, just take it small amounts at a time.   It explains things step by step, just like we would here.

It's the same as installing any other FS repaint. You just add the texture folder to the aircraft's folder, and add the fltsim.x section to the end of the fltsim.x lines in the aircraft.cfg, making sure that you number it correctly (they start at 0, not 1)

Have you ever installed a repaint into FS? Either default or a addon plane?

That's one of the most important things to be able to, befor heading into installing AI. There is simply too many 'traps' for newcomers to headjump right into that.

Learning how to install repaints is, as said, one of the most important and basic tjings in FS. So learn that, and you are a step further.

Then do the same with the repaints you need.

Because you are already using WOAI you might already have the models needed.

Notepad/notebook or similar. But don't use Word or similar.

If you don't know, I suggest finding some information. As said before, there's tons of information to be found, and it takes less time to read than the waiting time to get answers. The simple fact that you don't know with which program to open a CFG file makes me wonder how much you have installed all by yourself. (try Notepad.exe).
Good luck!
