I am using a friend's camera and can't ask him questions, since he is out of the country. No instruction manual...it stopped taking pictures. Now, no lights when I turn it on. Maybe, it needs a charge, but don't know how to charge the battery. Also, have other questions once I start using it.

Does it take standard disposable batteries or a rechargeable pack? If the first, check they are inserted correctly as per the illustration in the battery compartment or instruction manual section on inserting batteries. If the second type, recharge the pack. If problem continues check Troubleshooting section of manual or online at Samsung's website.
Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.
Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.
If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or
Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.
I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

Focus bracketing is mostly used like exposure bracketing, in a situation where you are unsure of the focus or in tricky situation. You focus normally and the camera will take 3/5/7 shots depending on the camera and you can then examine the shots on a computer and pick the best one. If you want to "blend" the pictures together, that is called focus stacking and is hard to do unless you use specialized software such as Helicon Focus:
Even with such software, you have to make sure the subject is perfectly still from frame to frame, so a tripod would normally be required.
Also, if all you want to do is get a large amount of the scene in focus, you do not need focus bracketing and focus stacking, simply select a small aperture (large f-stop) and that will increase you depth of field considerably.
Congratulations! This is a cool camera (one of my favorites).

Does the camera power off?
If so I would try a newer battery if you can
Usually an old battery if it is rechargeable,
will only hold a charge long enough to power up the camera
but when recording to disk it will power down.
