Tutorials, help file and manual are good starting points, as well as at least a basic education in NLE.
Thanks. What's NLE?
And since I have no experience in video editing I'm not sure what to look for in the help files. Any keywords you can give me to start with?
NLE = non-linear editor. Keywords you will be interested in are scale, motion and opacity.

Lynda.com has a free 24 hour trial (http://tinyurl.com/4spgoo) as well or a monthly access fee of $25, and there are plenty of tutorials to help you with what you need. With a full day of training, you could be in good shape by this time tomorrow.
Won't make you a super incredible editor, but you'll be on your way to at least finishing the project in front of you.
As far as doing it today...well, you might want to try stalling whoever it is you're working for until at least tomorrow, probably Monday if you can. Besides the training time, you'll need time for the actual editing as well as rendering, burning, etc etc.
Once you get on your feet with the training, the full subscription is well worth it. They add new courses all the time, and the project files in the Premium subscription are very helpful.
I agree with Christian. For an inexperienced editor to learn what he needs to know and actually do the editing by the end of today is quite the task.
I'd actually try and get it delayed a full week.
