Read around on sheldonbrown.com

It covers everything you need to know and more, and it has a whole page on fixed-gear conversion. I don't think anyone here will have the patience to spoonfeed everything to you... It's all on Sheldon's page, spend two hours reading all that's relevant to you. Come back with specific questions afterwards.
Start with the page on dropouts. Yours looks vertical, which will make life a bit difficult. Here's the link, the last one you get from me: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/fixed-conversion.html

Frame size: measure the seattube and the top tube center to center in cm, tell us how tall you are and we can make a guess if it's at least close to the right size.

Frame material: I'd guess steel. If a magnet sticks to it, it is. Otherwise, aluminium. The fork may not be the same material as the frame.
