Pi Zero does not have any wireless. If you want Wifi or Bluetooth built in you need a Pi Zero W.

Only the Pi Zero W has wireless.

Hello
Or use a WiFi and/or Blue Tooth USB stick. I have an Eminent EM1010 USB from/to UTP/RJ45 stick that works fine on every Pi, and when used together with a mini to normal USB convertercable it works also perfect at a Pi Zero, both in Raspbian Linux and RISC OS. You can than use a normal UTP/RJ45 EtherNet cable. Good luck in connecting your Pi Zero to the network.
Henri.

If i buy a usb hub i may as well buy a powered hub, then the expense gets closer to just buying a pi zero w

These days, a "computer" (phone, tablet, desktop, laptop, Pi) without some form of constant communication with the outside world (Ethernet and/or wifi) is of fairly limited use. I'm surprised that there's much demand for a Pi Zero (non-W).

The Pi model B's and Zero W are more general purpose computers, the model A's and the plain zeros are designed to be used as as embedded controllers.

No one will. You can copy the necessary files to the first partition of the sdcard on another computer (shutdown Pi, ger card out, put in other computer, copy files, put card back in Pi). The files will show up in the /boot directory on the Pi.

Where did you get those.deb files from? If it are PC files then it won't work, as raspberry has a different processor (ARM versus x86 for PC). If there is nothing with apt-get on raspberry, then you will have to find the source and compile from source.

You need to look for a "getting started on the Raspberry Pi" tutorial, there are many on the web.

well, if you use a Linux computer, you can also write to the EXT4 partition, change config info, etc..
with FreeBSD on the RPi I go a step further and do OS updates with the ufs partition mounted on a 'build machine' (running FreeBSD), where I can do a cross-platform kernel+world build and then install it to the SD card. [and packages could be built or downloaded on a different RPi and copied to the appropriate directory on the SD card]
besides, if you have a USB to ethernet adaptor it does not have to be dedicated to a single RPi device. You could just hook it up for programming the thing, then use it for something else when the RPi has been set up [maybe another pi zero] while the programmed device is blinking lights or displaying things on a screen or whatever, without needing a wireless or ethernet to 'do its thang'.

can everyone please hold my hand while I let them do everything for me?
I just couldn't resist snarking over that. I'd say the answer is 'No' because if we do it FOR you, you won't LEARN anything.

(1) get a copy of the Raspberry Pi User Guide and read it.
(2) if you need to know more, you can: (a) get a copy of "Linux for Dummies" the '...for Dummies' books are well-regarded beginner books despite the name
(b) Bookmark

and read it if you get stuck. Raspbian is a clone of Debian so what's in here is 100% relevant.
Have fun learning. Who knows, you may like what you see well enough to get out of Windows 10 hell by replacing it with Debian, Mint or Ubuntu on your PC(s).
I haven't used Windows since 2005 and haven't missed it one bit, but my PCs all run Red Hat Fedora rather than Debian.
