Here is a little example:

import java.security.*;
import javax.crypto.*;
import au.net.aba.crypto.provider.TwofishKey;

public class crypt1
{
     private final static byte kb[] = {
          (byte)0x01, (byte)0x23, (byte)0x45, (byte)0x67,
          (byte)0x89, (byte)0xab, (byte)0xcd, (byte)0xef,
          (byte)0xfe, (byte)0xdc, (byte)0xba, (byte)0x98,
          (byte)0x76, (byte)0x54, (byte)0x32, (byte)0x10,
          (byte)0x10, (byte)0x32, (byte)0x54, (byte)0x76,
          (byte)0x98, (byte)0xba, (byte)0xdc, (byte)0xfe,
          (byte)0xef, (byte)0xcd, (byte)0xab, (byte)0x89,
          (byte)0x67, (byte)0x45, (byte)0x23, (byte)0x01
     };

     public static void main( String args[] )
     {
          String d = "Hello World! Encrypting and decrypting is cool!";
          Cipher c;
          byte iv[] = new byte[] {
               (byte)0x10, (byte)0x32, (byte)0x54, (byte)0x76,
               (byte)0x98, (byte)0xba, (byte)0xdc, (byte)0xfe,
               (byte)0xef, (byte)0xcd, (byte)0xab, (byte)0x89,
               (byte)0x67, (byte)0x45, (byte)0x23, (byte)0x01
          };
          byte pd[];
          byte cd[];
          Security.addProvider(
                    new au.net.aba.crypto.provider.ABAProvider() );
          try
          {
               System.out.println( "get Cipher" );
               c = Cipher.getInstance( "Twofish/CBC/PKCS7Padding" );
               System.out.println( "create Key" );
               Key k = new TwofishKey( kb );
               System.out.println( "init Cipher" );
               c.init( Cipher.ENCRYPT_MODE, k );
               System.out.println( "encrypt some data" );
               pd = d.getBytes();
               c.update( iv );
               cd = c.doFinal( pd );
               System.out.println( "init Cipher" );
               c.init( Cipher.DECRYPT_MODE, k );
               System.out.println( "decrypt data" );
               pd = c.doFinal( cd );
               System.out.println( "data: " + new String(pd,16,pd.length-16) );
               System.out.println( "" );
          }
          catch( Exception ex )
          {
               ex.printStackTrace();
          }
     }
}

I had a little problem decrypting the first block so I added a byte array named iv and removed it after decrypting because I don't know how to do it the right way ;-)
In ECB mode it works fine but ECB is less secure.

I can't tell you which cipher to use because that depends on many things.
I bought the book 'Applied Cryptography' from Bruce Schneier and am reading it now. It explaines everything you need to know.
