What I haven't found out is how I actually get them to show up on my site. I
downloaded an aggregator called NewsCrawler and i'm a little stumped on what

Yes. And No.

The _good_ way is to install some sort of parser on your server. The
specifics depend on your server environment. Google can help here (e.g. if
you can use Perl then you should google for Perl RSS).

There are also third party services which will do the syndication for you
and give you some JavaScript to document.write their content on your site.
This is easy, but poor quality.
