Hacking Wordpress can be a nightmare, even if you do know how to edit HTML and CSS. It gives me headaches.
It really depends on where you want the code to appear. If you want it in your sidebar then you'll have to look for a file called sidebar.php, but even then it might not be what you're after. One tip for inserting stuff like that into the sidebar is to get a theme that has a "widget-ready" sidebar. Then you can insert a "custom text" widget, which can contain your code.
If you want it to appear somewhere else on your page, you will generally have a bunch of pages to edit, depending on whether you want things appearing on your home page (home.php) your "single post" page, your archives page, or whatever.
You can also usually paste the code into an individual page/post by sticking it into HTML view when you edit the page. But that's really messy!
With AffiloBlueprint we had our own custom Wordpress theme developed which keeps things simple, but you have to be a member to get that :(
