Hehe, indeed you are. Welcome to the site. Unfortunately, the effect you are talking about is a highly complex 3d effect, and requires comprehensive 3d software. Realistically, it can't be done as a preset. Once you have the 3D animation, it could be compositied in FXhome software, but the effect itself will require addditional software to create.

In fact, I've got a pretty cool idea for actually making a preset for this kind of metal liquid effect...it won't be any close to as good as the original T2 effect, but hopefully pretty close. One way would be to apply a edge detect: emboss effect to some greenscreened footage, with some ripple, wave and glow effects added. This will of course not be able to make things like eyes and lips, but it should prove to work for creating some kind of metal human-like form. Keep your eyes peeled on the FXpreset section, and something might pop up there soon...

I recommend reading the manual that comes with Blender, seeing that's the program you've got. Maybe search for tutorials for Blender on google or so.

Your question is too unspecific Naruto. You could as well ask
"Explain the world to me."

If you need help with a specific task, no problem. But it's not possible for any of us to explain a process as complicated as that.
