Once you have a legally copied ISO file on your computer you'll want to install and configure Dolphin in order to play it.
The important bits to note about getting Dolphin to run properly is that you'll need Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 (x86 or x64) installed. You'll also need the DirectX March 2009 Runtime. Use the Microsoft DirectX Updater. It's probably also a good idea to update your video drivers while you're at it.
Dolphin itself is pretty easy to use. Like most emulators it features a plethora of control configurations and convenient save state options.
