Set this aside for a minute and put together the smallest program you can that shows where you are stuck. I pulled these lines from different places in your code:

If you put that in the main() of a tiny new class, does it work? Does that answer the question about needing streams? What do you want to do to each line next?

Have you taken a look at our FAQ, How To Ask Questions On JavaRanch? It has sections like Ease Up and Isolate The Problem that will help us help you.
 
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
