I am new to Linux and would like to know in simple terms how to load third party software, I have Ubuntu running on my machine.

What do you mean by third party software?

I mean software that is not from the Linux vault so to speak

It depends on which version of linux you have. If you have a look on their web pages you will find "how to's"

For example Ubuntu Adding a software repository

Can you be more specific? You're asking a question that has many forms of answer.

Are you talking about running Windows software? Are you talking about installing from source? Do you mean using different repositories?

The question is too vague to answer.

Should have said the Ubuntu example above was for 10.04 later versions may be different. Links to versions 8.04 to 11.10 can be found here Official Ubuntu Documentation
