On the bottom of your camera there will be a threaded metal socket. It should look silver in color and appear like the inside of a hardware nut -- threads that a bolt can screw into.
On the top of the tripod is a threaded bolt that fits into the socket on the bottom of the camera. Place the bolt gently into the socket, align it with the camera and gently turn it to the right (righty-tighty) to engage. Be careful not to strip the threads by tightening without aligning the bolt and the camera.
You should tighten it to where it is snug but don't force it.

Where can I get parts?
I got from friend a Velbon Victory 550 tripod. The handle that prevent the head from tilting is missing, and so is a piece of plastic that apparently held the rod upon which the head of the tripod is placed from shaking.

Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.
Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.
You can still order a replacement foot from:-
But at US$18.99 it may be cheaper to buy a new tripod!
I hope that you appreciate the time which I've taken to research and answer your question and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.
