I have the wrong version of Java and I can't find a way to download it.
They told me to software update, but it didn't appear.

Software Update is the tool used to update the Java runtime/sdk on a Mac. If it's not showing up, open up SU and go to Software Update > Reset Ignored Updates.

If you go to this page, what version of Java does it say you're running? What version of OS X are you using?

Gee, thanks Bender!
Also I couldn't hit the button, it was grayed out, but there was something I had forgotten to update (iTunes) earlier, which may have been the problem.
EDIT:
nevermind it DID NOT WORK :C
i cannot reset ignored updates :C

If you can't reset the ignored updates, it means there aren't any.

Did you run the Java test I linked to above? I still need your version of OS X as well.

It says "No plug-in available to display this content."
Also I'm running 10.5.8.

It looks like Java isn't installed which is odd since it comes with OS X (prior to Lion). Regardless, you can download it from here.

I installed it, it seems to have worked, but for some reason it hasn't touched chrome.
My test was to check a Java browser game I found. It didn't work on Chrome after Java but it worked on Firefox.
This leads me to believe it's a Chrome problem. How can I get Chrome to accept Java itself?

Go to the about:plugins URL in Chrome (it's a Chrome specific URL). On that page, check to see if Java is recognized. If it is, make sure it's enabled.

Nothing specifying java there.
There's flash, quicktime, silverlight, shockwave, and some other plugins.
