First, although responding to you via email might be convenient, it's better to let others who may find this thread with a similar question to benefit from the answers you get, so responding on the forum is preferred.

But is there a special document font folder that you also have to load the fonts to so you can use them in InDesign?
If you place fonts into your OS fonts folders, they will be available to all programs. If you just want to use them in InDesign, there is a fonts folder in the InDesign application folder. Just place them there and they will be available in InDesign only.
What is an easy way or can you break down the steps for me to Place an open office document in InDesign.
I use Mac OS only, so I'm not sure how Windows does it, but I expect it's very similar. Mac OS has several fonts folders. One provides fonts for all users on the computer. Another provides fonts for the specific user that is logged in at the moment (so, if you use a work station in the day, you can log in as yourself, and if someone works evenings, they can have their own log-in that they can customize, and you don't have to reset your preferences every time your co-worker changes them to suit their own needs. In that case, you could have fonts that are not available to your co-worker, and visa-versa). A third fonts folder is inside the InDesign folder in your Applications folder. These fonts are only available to InDesign. You might wonder why you would want fonts that only work in InDesign, but it's convenient in production settings where you open a job someone else made, and you just need to tweak it or output to press. If you drop the fonts there, you can delete them after the job is done, and you don't muck up your system with fonts you may only need that one time.
Some Windows expert will probably be able to advise you on what to do, but if you use the InDesign fonts folder, it should work. As to the video, the concepts should be helpful in what ever version of InDesign you are using.
