I was wondering how to make many objects(items) into ONE object? I heard you should select one object and then use Attach. But i cant find Attach.

You are confused with grouping and the boolean object called 'connect' through which you can connect several objects to eachother. Then after connecting them you can use >convert to editable mesh to make a single mesh object from it.

If you wish to attach multiple objects - for instance a humanoid character where you have modelled the torso, head, arms and legs separately, select one of the objects, go to its sub-object level and select polygons, scroll down until you see attach, click it and then click each of the objects you wish to attach, when done deselect the attach button and you will now have a single object. In order to prevent rendering problems you must delete the polygons between the attached objects, and weld vertices to create a secure join otherwise you will have gaps in your mesh.
Hope this helps.
