It's always a good idea to explain the research you've done on your own, and what parts of it you don't understand. Often, when forum users read posts from others requesting 'hand-holding' as opposed to searching the vast amount a information available on a topic, they're reluctant to assist. If it appears you've made some sort of effort and are stuck, that's a different story

Yes, it is very simple to do. You place the call from the google voice app (3rd party), the web app, or the website. Google voice then calls you at whichever number you tell it to contact you at, and then completes the call to the other party.
You are using minutes from your voice plan, but long distance is charged via GoogleVoice. As far as AT&T is concerned, you are simply making a local call.
