    I'd like to request yShout plugin which would make my yShout shoutbox appear in the page where I want to. Can somebody help me with that?

    Hi, you could take a look at this plugin as a starting point, the notes point out though that this is an alpha version,

    I know nothing about php unfortunatelly. Just need a few lines of code, I guess. That's it.

    For actual WordPress plugins, try reading the documentation on Plugins.
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins

    You don't really need to know PHP to be able to manage plugins, but it's still important to understand how they bolt on-to WordPress.

    And in answer to your actual question, the first thing I'd like to say is: why would you need a plugin to embed your yShout into WordPress when (as you've said) when

    Just a few lines of code
    are necessary?

    If that is the case, you can probably use sidebar widgets by creating a text widget and including the HTML code for yShout. I had a quick look at their website, and it doesn't give any indication of how you include the shoutbox on your site but this is a common method.

    And finally, since yShout is "donation-ware", why not just contact the developer and ask him the question?
