Then it's basically set up. You launch the app and sign in with your Google account if you have one. If you don't then I believe you are prompted to create one. Depending on what you have linked to your google account, hangouts will automatically sync Google + contacts etc. Other than that, if you want to use that as your main messaging system, just make sure that it's set as the default messaging app on your phone.

Then make sure it's set as your default messaging app (in Hangouts > Settings > SMS) and that you're signed in with your Google account. Full Hangouts help can be found here: https://support.google.com/hangouts/?hl=en#topic=2944851

Your contacts have to already be in a Google + account for them to sync I believe. If they are, then there should be an option in the messaging system to sync the contacts manually since they haven't done so automatically.
