hi, i have a simple question. when reading tabs i come across arrangements like this:

5^(7)

does this mean that i bend from the fifth fret till i get the sound that i would when i play the 7th fret?

yes, and a 2 step bend is probably not the bend you wanna start out on, but if you do i hope you have 9's or 10's yours trying on

Unless the tab specifically states otherwise, yes; you will fret the indicated note (in this case, the fifth fret), and raise it to the desired pitch indicated after the caret (in this case the pitch achieved when fretting the seventh fret).

That is a one step bend, not a two step bend. If it were from the fifth to the ninth fret, then yes.
