I can't find the .exe file- how do I make it work? And what's a VST Plugin?

The easiest answer to this question is to point to the associated tutorial- Lesson 1: Installation- which answers this question in detail.

Armchair Guitarist is a VST Plugin, rather than a standalone application- rather than run a seperate .exe file yourself, it is a .dll that is run inside another program, called a VST Host, which is usually a form of Digital Audio Workstation.

There are many programs capable of running VST Plugins- the format was originally invented by Steinberg for its flagship product, Cubase, but they also run in Reaper, Energy XT, Ableton LIVE, and many, many others.
