You go about using it by reading it's documentation. You'll see the very first section is 'installing openwrt'.

Do you absolutely need to install linux on your router? Couldn't you just get an old Pentium III computer, install linux, and learn C on that? Having to do this with your router makes it a million times harder. Cross compiling is a real pain.

It's a router. If you want to download the OS, go to OpenWRT's main page and click on 'downloads'.

No, you don't. But their downloads probably won't do you much good without a well-configured cygwin setup or a linux install. Are you absolutely certain you need to learn C programming on your router? You've taken the absolute hardest way possible to accomplish this.

If you can't figure out which file to download without being spoon-fed, you certainly won't be able to install it or use it without being spoon-fed, and while I want to help you, I already have a career. Are you absolutely certain you need to learn C programming on your router? You've taken the absolute hardest way possible to accomplish this.
