I want to make a portable soundboard, but do not know how to get the sounds to play when I want to hit a button.

Could someone please explain to me how? I am a total noob at electronics, but i thought this would be a good beginning project?

You should star with making simple converters. An easy instructable here would be this
after you can understand that you can start to add amps, switches and multiple inputs.
Not really a good beginning project. There are a lot of different ways you can go about it, but they all end up fairly complex with extensive parts lists. The easiest way is to make a soundboard on a tablet or laptop PC using commonly available software and use that. It's probably cheaper than buying the parts to make a decent sized board.
