BlogsMU - Add Slide Show on Home Page


I've been told by a couple of different people that I should post my questions specifically about a theme here. In advance I would like to say sorry but I will have a lot of questions. Also I am not a programmer but if pointed in the right direction I can change code with some assistance.

I would like to add a slide show feature to the main page of the BlogsMu theme potentially in the same area as the 420x260 box already there.
