yarn forward
I know this may sound silly, but is a yarn forward essentially a yarn over? If not, can someone tell me exactly what to do? Thanks a bunch!

Sometimes it is. It depends on how the pattern is worded. If it says something like 'yf, k2tog (or sl 1 k1, psso), k3' then it is. If it says 'yf, slip 1, yb/yarn back, k2' then it's just bringing the yarn to the front of your work to slip the stitch. Which pattern is it, or how does the row read?

The pattern says either "yfwd, ssk, k5" or "yfwd, k5,..." for all the yarn forwards. Does that mean they are just yarn overs?
