To make my question easier, If I were to build a small town how can I go walk around in it. Do I need to build a character and somehow use him to walk around? I just want walk around with the keys but from a first person point of view. Please give some details because I am kind of new to this program. Thank you.

You have to animate the camera.

These actually dint answer my question =/ Say if I were to make a FPS how would I make the camera go to the first person point of view so I can walk around and view things from the characters point of view?

I thought you wanted to render a walkthrough animation. To just move around - go into camera view (Numpad0) and enable Fly Mode (Shift+F). I don't find it very handy though, since it uses acceleration and doesn't behave like a true FPS camera.

So how do I actually incorporate this onto a character. So when the character moves the camera sees what the character sees

That's a question for the Game Engine forum.
