Depends on the lens. If it is a G lens, you have to do this on the camera body. Set the program dial to A and use the wheel on the camera body. If the lens is not a G lens but it's autofocus-capable, you can do the same.
The smallest aperture is the one with the highest number, this is normally f/22 or f/32.

This means that the lens doesn't have its aperture ring set to its smallest opening. Turn the aperture ring to its smallest opening (largest f/fnumber) and lock it if the lens has an aperture ring lock. You control the aperture from the body, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.
You didn't provide the name or model lens, so I can provide generic assistance that applies to many lenses. Hopefully, it will work for you.
Many lenses need to be set to the smallest aperture setting in order to be controlled by the camera. If it is moved off this value, the camera will be unable to change the f-stop value. If it is stuck - meaning the camera can't change it - make sure it is set for the smallest opening (highest number 28, 32, etc.). If it is stuck meaning you are unable to twist the aperture ring on the lens barrel to manually change the setting, look for a small tab that engages the aperture ring. They are often employed to prevent accidental movement of the aperture ring off of the smallest opening.
That depends on the camera. Many cameras don't stop the aperture down until you press the shutter release button, allowing you or the camera to focus with the most available light. Some cameras, like newer Nikons, control the lens aperture from the camera body. In order to do this the aperture ring has to be set somewhere, and the smallest setting is as good as any. The setting on the camera overrides the setting on the lens.
If you have further questions, please feel free to respond to this thread. Be sure to specify the make and model of your camera when you do.
It means that the lens is not set to its smallest aperture. Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.
It means that you have a lens with an aperture ring connected and the aperture ring is not set at its smallest aperture.
Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it if the ring has a lock. Control the aperture from the body, just as you do with a lens without an aperture ring.
In all modes the aperture ring on the lens should be locked at the smallest aperture. In the M and A modes you control the aperture by turning the command dial on the front of the camera. In P and S modes you control the aperture indirectly by turning the command dial on the back of the camera.
Check to see that the lens aperture ring is set to the smallest (largest numerical) aperture setting (usually f22 or such). Nikon AF cameras have to have their lenses set at the smallest aperture for most of their program modes to work. Nikon AF lenses have a small slide or twist lock adjacent to the aperture ring to lock it in place at the smallest aperture. This may have been unlocked during the cleaning.
Another possibility is that the lens's electrical contacts were damaged during cleaning, so the body is not "seeing" the lens. Do you have another lens you could attach to the body to test this theory?
FEE means that your lens is not set to the smallest aperture setting. If you are using your camera's auto-focus mode, the lens must be set to the smallest aperture setting which, on your lens, is probably f22 (the smallest aperture is the largest number). Once you set the lens aperture, you should slide the aperture lock to the locked position. The aperture lock is located just right of your largest setting f3.5. This slider should line up with the orange line. To verify that the latch is engaged, try to change the aperture by rotating the aperture ring. In the locked position, the ring will not turn.
Check if the aperture is set on anything other than 22. This would generate an error message. the N50 (and other auto Nikon cameras) needs to have the lens aperture set to the smallest -- AutoFocus lenses have a lock on them to lock the aperture at the smallest. Some models, such as the N5, can be set to use either the lens' aperture ring or the camera's command dial to set the aperture, but most simpler Nikon auto cameras can only be set by the camera. Setting the lens to its smallest aperture tells the camera that it can control the lens. If the lens is set to anything else than the smallest aperture, F-- shows up on the camera's LCD, and the camera locks up. Check your camera manual for complete info.
