I'm wondering how to put words near the chat..? Sorry, I don't know how to word it. I've seen lots of Wikis where the Chat sidebar on the side of pages says "Read the chat rules, etc.". How would I do that on my Wiki?

If you're referring to the text in the right Chat box where it says "Community Central" here, it was most likely done with JavaScript.
If you want to change it for your wiki, you will have to edit the MediaWiki:Wikia.js page which requires admin rights. If you are an admin, you can place the following code onto the page:
$(document).ready(function() {
    $('p.chat-name').html('Read the Chat rules<a href="FullURLToPageHere">here</a>.');
});
Replace where it says FullURLToPageHere with the full URL of the page with the chat rules.
