    If you mean how to add a resource to your project go on project and in buttom you will see ( your project name ) properties then you will see lots of tabs on left click on resources and add your file :P.

    Setup your project so that the file is available in your build directory. Project + Add Existing Item and pick your file. Select the added file and set its Build property to Content (so it gets installed with the rest of your files) and its Copy to Output Directory to "Copy if Newer" (so it gets copied to your build directory).
