Well, you place your game/code under the license. This usually means for source-code you either reference to the license, or place the listen in all off your headers.

As for a game, it goes the same, except you usually provide a license.txt with it.

There is no need to register with a specific authority. As soon as you place your license info anywhere, that's the license that will valid.

The GNU GPL (Just Google for 'GNU LGPL' or 'GNU FDL' if you're after them) has instructions, as well as the complete licence there for what to do to apply that licence to your project.

Googling is probably the key to getting information on using other licences such as the BSD licence - make sure you use the (or an) official site where possible.
