Just about every guitar sound on my HorrorVox album (link in my signature) was run through Fretted Synth's FreeAmp 3. I don't remember why I picked that one and it proved to be somewhat buggy and crashy in a complex FL file but it worked for my purposes.

In addition to NI and IK, Line 6 has a free version of POD Farm. Again, not as full-featured as the paid version, but when you combine all the free stuff you can get some pretty cool sounds

Ok...Now I'll show you how stupid I am...How do you use VST's..DAW's..WHAT are they? Hey I plug into an amp, put a microphone in front of it and plug the mic into a board. Send the board to a tape deck or a old free version of Avid Pro Tools, but I never got a handle on the whole thing. But this free soft amp thing has me intrigued. Anybody wanna help in 10,000 words or less? Less would be better, I'm 60 and may not have time to read much.

My favorite free ones are
Ignite -some great ones for clean especially. Also have some nice pedal sims, an amazing free EQ, and a Bass Amp sim.
TSE Audio (also really great Tube Screamer sim)
I mostly use cab IRs I made myself. Use the DAW's IR loader.
You need minimally
An audio interface (you may be able to use a 'soudn card' on your computer, but they tend to be problematic)
Look up Focusrite, Presonus, M-Audio, etc.
A DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) basically your virtual recorder, mixer, and much much more
The DAW acts as a host for vst or other plugins, vst is simply the most common type. See kvraudio.com for a mostly complete list. http://www.kvraudio.com/q.php
If you dont want to record, there are 'standalone' vst hosts, which have the benefit of simplicity.
