I have a question, does anyone know how to send information from a contact form directly to my e-mail? Is this even possible because right now i don't even know where to store this type of information.

You can't send email directly using a form, but the form can submit data to the server and then the server can send the email. Setting that up depends on the server. For example, Wordpress sites have a standard contact form you can include in your site and a configuration menu where you put your email address.
Another approach is to use a "mailto:" in the form's action, but that may not work depending on the user's mail agent and/or browser. At best it will open the user's mailer and fill in the info but the user will still have to select "send" to generate the email.
