I know this is a very silly question, but why do I want and affiliate and what does it exactly mean? I am very-very new to this and any help will be nice.
Not a silly question at all. To make money on hubpages, you have to become an affiliate of one or both of these companies. You'll then get an affiliate or publisher ID from them that you'll have to enter on hubpages. The whole process is quite simple. Follow these two links to the FAQ page to learn more.

If you want to make money on Hubpages then you need to sign up to the Affiliate schemes. AdSense and Amazon basically.
AdSense pay you when readers visit their links, Amazon pay you a commission if you sell one of their products.
I'd start with Amazon - https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
Hub Pages tends to be a very good place for an Amazon affiliate. Sign up, add it to your Hub Pages affiliate section, use the Amazon module, and watch tons of money trickle in. And crossing your fingers helps too.
I'm not sure if you may be thinking of the the traffic referral program, where you can make money by referring new members and/or by sending traffic to the site. Either way, you will need to sign up for Adsense/Amazon etc. to benefit from this.

I am pretty new to hubpages, and I hear that a lot of people make money off of adsense and amazon, but I have heard almost nothing about Kontera. Is anyone using this or making any moeny from it? Is it worth my time?

Okay,... I'm still relatively new to the hubpages environment. I have written 9 hubs now and have had about 1,000 hits on one of them. I'm signed up for Google Adsense and also signed up with Amazon for...
