I dont know if all E36's come with the foglight wiring harness (it should), relay, and fog light button on the airvent cluster, if they do, then it's plug and play - pop out the inserts in your bumper, screw the mounting brackets in, and plug the lights up.
If it does not come with a relay or the airvent cluster, you'll have to install those yourself.
Check: autohausaz.com, pelicanparts.com, umnitza.com, bavauto.com (in order of my personal preference) for parts.
check if its pre-wired. Even if it is you'll still need to buy the relay, the switch and of course the fogs. Get it all 2nd hand, otherwise they charge u stupid amounts like $70 for the switch at the stealership. and i recommend crystal fogs, thats what i have.
if my car isn't pre wired, what is it goign to take for me to wire it...
the most complicated thing ive ever done with a car's electronics is installing headlights... (unplugging and pluggin in new OEM ones...) so should this be difficult for me?

Usually the later 318's came prewired. We have done a few fog light installs in cars that wern't prewired at the shop I work at and it was not fun. You can get the complete kit from the dealer with everything you need though.
