Being a newbie to Mac computers... I'm not sure if anything can be done other than to format/reinstall OS X. Do you have a backup of your computer on an external drive? Do you have a flash drive or self-made DVD of Lion you can use to reinstall using a USB/Firewire DVD drive? Hopefully you do have a backup of your files so that it will be relatively easy to put the important ones back on your computer once you reinstall.

I am not familiar with any other way of fixing the hard drive space issue.

Here is the link to the recovery page on Apple - OS X Recovery restores your Mac with a few clicks.

I hope someone more knowlegable comes around and is able to help you further. Good luck!! I hope you get this fixed without much data loss.
