Applying patches is not an easy task :(
If they are shiny new patches it should be almost as simple as typing

If they are old patches you will need to apply them by hand ("Hunk Failed")
If you can program in C, this is relatively easy.
If you are not a programmer, give up before you send yourself insane ;)
