Where did the simulator come from? There was no mention of this. How can I go on if I don't have a simulator?

Having a simulator is a big part of a React Native development environment. How do I set it up? The previous tutorial shows you how with create-react-native-app but in this one we're just downloading the files so we don't have the set-up.

Let me scrap my previous answer since this particular course doesn't use Create React App and Expo. To run the app from this course you need a device (phone/tablet/etc.) to run it on or an emulator that simulates a device and the development suite of the device's OS you're targeting (Android Studio for Android, XCode for iOS). By "simulator" I'm assuming you mean "emulator". Both suites include emulators for their respective OS.
