I would like to download pics from a digital camera to my computer but the computer is old. I see no port for digital card
Do you have the CD that came with your digital camera?
IF so, put it in your optical drive, and install the software.
This CD contains the drivers for your camera.
Drivers allow your computer to 'communicate' with you camera.

They sell USB cables that have this style of male USB plug on one end, and the usual USB A style on the other end of the cable.
Male. The male USB A style, is shown all the way to the right in the photo.
Looking at the usual style of USB plug, compare it's size to the Micro USB plug.
Yes, the female version of that plug is on your phone.
There is also a kit made by Philips, that has 5 different adapter ends of the USB style, in the kit.
The adapter ends just plug onto a male USB A style end.
The kit comes with a Male A USB to Male A USB cable.
It's rolled up on a tiny reel that is about 1 inch wide, and is retractable.
You just grab the ends of the cable, and pull out the length of cable you need.
This gives you an idea of what I'm referring to,

Some camera's have it so you turn the camera on, and open the shutter. Your camera may differ. Check your camera user guide.
Another way is to buy an All-In-One card reader.
Plug a USB cable into it, and your computer.
This is an example,
