    For Wordpress you should download a plugin search for - XML Sitemaps. This plugin or any like it should be able to automatically make your sitemap and alert Google, Yahoo and Bing.

    It is a page you need to generate yourself, either manually or more likely using software as suggested by alinator. You can call the file anything but it is typical to call it sitemap.xml. The path and filename for the sitemap should then be set in your robots.txt file so that search engines know where to find it. You can also submit it manually in both Google and Bing Webmaster Tools.

    If you are using wordpress you can easily find a plugin to generate a sitemap for you

    If you code your own script, you can manualy made your own sitemap, or you can make a program to automaticaly generate your sitemap (depend on your script).

    the file is normally at the root of your domain. For example you have domain.com, your sitemap should be on domain.com/sitemap.xml

    There are 2 types of sitemap, the compressed which is .gz or the uncompress with .xml

    Hope it helps.

    Load of place on the web will make a sitemap for you if you are using HTML, then just drop into root folder.
    Wordpress use a plugin
