I have recently learned that to install something on linux, you use the sudo apt-get command, but in gentoo it keeps saying that the command doesn't exist. is it a problem with gentoo, or just an incompatible command? :?

apt-get is from Debian (and its derivates like ubuntu). Using Gentoo the correct command is "emerge".

Please take a look at the documentation here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/index.xml

Nate, welcome to Gentoo. :) Have you read the Handbook yet? Specifically, the Working with Gentoo section covers this subject matter.
