Hi! I’m new to this whole thing, and I need some help with making the player character, so if anyone knows how to put the character on screen and all of that, it would really help.

Hi, as a first step you should read the first chapters of the manual/help.
If you never programmed before, then my BASIC tutorial should help, too (find it here on the Help page)

1) open up a new program, and look at the top right corner for 4 buttons...
an up page, a draw page, a magnifying glass, and a triangle..

Click the draw page button... then select CHAR DESIGNER

2) at the bottom left you see #001, this means you are editing char#001

Use the big black area in the upper left to edit your character... use black, dark gray,gray, and white buttons to select a differerent color to draw with..

Tap the DISK button, then the SAVE button to save your character

Now click the little x button in the very top left corner to exit back

3) you will now see...

#2:MAIN CHARACTERS
00000000000000000000000000000000
00003020261E661C00000E080A02661C

Your #'s may be different, but this is how NX saves your characters... add empty text space ABOVE this and add this code...

CELL 5,5,1

#2:MAIN CHARACTERS
00000000000000000000000000000000
00003020261E661C00000E080A02661C

4) now hit the triangle button at the top right corner to run your program,...

... and PRESTO, your designed character is on the screen :D
