I am just so confused with these. I don't even no where to start or give examples I know what they stand for
me- to me, for me
te-to you, for you
le-to him/her, for him/her
nos-to us, for us
les, to them, for them

I don't know where to place them or rearanged them

like

Ella le vende la ropa a Elena
Ana le presta la falda a Elena

I don't understand what verbs you conjugate.

You've got the placement right--the indirect pronoun always goes before the verb. You conjugate the verb going by the thing that's doing it, rather than the thing that's receiving the action; for example, in "Ana le presta la falda a Elena", Ana is doing the lending, so you conjugate the verb with respect to her, not Elena.

Hope I made sense :)
