Not sure about the BU thing but a bend is when you push or pull the string upwards or downwards while holding a fret. So that the tone changes.

if u have 7BU9 i would say it means ur gonna hold on the 7th fret, n bend it so it reaches the same note as 9! (i suck at explaining) AkA bending to 9 :P

A bend would be when you pull or push the string up or down on it's fret, changing the pitch.
BU means to bend upwards.

Don't be "sorry for noobness" :P Everyone else had to learn at some point, too. It's what everyone else said - you fret whichever note you want, and then you literally bend the string by pulling or pushing. I generally pull e B G, and push E A D. You can bend to different lengths, like 1/4 or 1/2. I'm sure there's a lesson video somewhere on UG, there's lots of nifty stuff here.

Yeah im pretty sure BU means bend up. To do a bend its pretty straight forward. Just play the note and push the string either towards or away from yourself. If ur doing it right you should notice the pitch of the note has changed

start by bending, when u get the hang of it, add vibrato FTW!
