Did you try "openvpn howto" ? 

Generally a good place to start.
OpenVPN is a very popular tool in unix/linux world (even client in Windows)

If you have a more specific question, do not hesitate

I guess so, depending on your patience and knowledge about VPN
I think you have a vpn server package on your distribution, ready to be installed :) That would be a good first step.

You have to have 2 computers to test it. Ideally on the same network, no network restriction between them. To avoid side-effects problems.
That will make sure you know how to install, configure and use.

Then you can think about VPN over the Internet, with proxy/firewall/routeur settings and so on :)
