I'm sorry if I sound like a totall noob saying this, but what is gnome? And what purpose does it serve?

And last but not least, how do I get it?

If you use Ubuntu, you already have it:).
It's your desktop environment (everything that you see on your computer after you booted).
Have a look at this link, it will help:

Wikipedia sums it up nicely as well.
