I wouldn't put my money on a camera. Go for an IR phone or an IrDA USB instead, which are the tried and true methods.
Anyway, first, you get the downloads from THIS topic. Save them onto your computer. Extract the files (turn them into JPEGS). I usually just click on them and my computer extracts them for me. (macs FTW!) If you use Windows, I'm not sure what you have to do. Either it works like what I do or you have to download 7zip and/or Winrar to extract the files if you don't have it already (ask a parent about extraction if you don't understand what I'm saying).
Now, you have three options:
1) Save the downloads on an SD (not SDHC) card and put it into your phone's slot.
2) Load the downloads onto your phone using a data cable.
3) Plug in your IrDA USB and beam the downloads on from there.
Compatible phones and devices are HERE.
EDIT: Some devices are compatible with SDHC cards, but very few are. If you choose to buy an SD card, 1) check to make sure that it's an SD, just to be on the safe side, and 2) that your device has a working SD card slot.

There aren't a lot of people who have gotten a computer to beam things over. Like I said before, device or IrDA USB is your best bet.
What model is your phone? You could ask around if any relatives or friends have any cast off, working IR devices you can use/borrow. :) And I don't think your cell phone has IR. Again, you might want to check if it's on the list of compatible devices that I posted.

Have you ever played a handheld Nintendo game? (Like a Gameboy, Gameboy color, DS, ect.) That little red line that is somewhat dark yet clear on the console is the IR.

So they take something like that and put it in a thumb drive like device and TA-DA, IR USB port.

You can buy an irDA USB on eBay. You download the download files onto your computer. There are links on here to Tama-Zone where all of the downloads can be found. After installing the software that comes with the USB port, you plug it into your computer, and connect the USB with your tamagotchi iD L just like you would two tamagotchis, transferring the file into the tamagotchi. Volia.

So guys, I feel like its too risky to download stuff into our computer since its so old and slow and sometimes crashes on us. It wouldnt have enough memory and maybe ill ask friends and stuff that have a mac whereas I have a dell windows computer.

Windows does work. A lot of people here have successfully gotten downloads and extracted them without a Mac. I only used Mac as an example because that's how I extract my files. :P You could save your downloads on a USB flash drive instead, so it wouldn't take up space on the computer.

It doesn't glow. (The glowing red line is the power indicator)
It's on the back of the DS. (It doesn't actually have a beam but the below is an example of an IR on a DS.)
