Hi, sort of new to guitar here.

I need to know how to play tabs that have organization such as this. 
 
|-----------------|
|-----------------|
|-7\6---7\6---7\6-|
|-----------------|
|-5\4---5\4---5\4-|
|-----0-----0-----|


Notice the notes that are separated by a string. How do I play that? If I could know, that would be great. Thank you!

Joreggy528 It would depend on the song, but it could indicate one of two things.  

Most likely you would strum the chord with the missed string muted. So even though your pick hits the three strings only the notes of the two shown are heard. The same as if it were alternately written like this:
|-----------------|
|-----------------|
|-7\6---7\6---7\6-|
|-x-----x-----x---|
|-5\4---5\4---5\4-|
|-----0-----0-----|

Or it could be that you are meant to use a pick on the 5th string and your finger to pluck the 3rd string, a technique called hybrid picking.

They're called octave chords. They're much easier than you would think and there's plenty of how to videos on Youtube. Here's one of them:
