Undo the bolt that is on the brake that holds the cable in place (usually on the right side of the bike when you are riding it) pull the cable out from the brake, and then from any little slots it goes through on the fork. Then pull the cable up through the stem (thing that holds the handlebars down) until it is all the way out. Remove your grip and then brake lever (some you have to get the grip off first) and put grip back on if needed. Now take the brake off of the fork, and you are done.

Take it to a shop man. You need to know the basic parts before you should be doing any work on your bike. Without knowing what things are or how to do them you can really do a lot of damage.

Same here, I fucked up so many parts when I started...but now I got everything BMX on lock.

Just takes time and learning. Best advice is to look up maintenance techniques and tips online to learn properly.
