You do not yet really own that Macbook if your friend's crap is still all over it.
Back up anything of yours you've added to the machine, then buy a Snow Leopard disc for $30 (and an external DVD drive), ERASE the hard drive completely, then restore your stuff. If you were on Lion before you did this, you can then use the Mac App Store to buy and download Lion.
Then and ONLY then will that machine actually be yours. And yes, you should buy and install additional RAM if needed. It's not generally difficult, varies a bit with the particular model you have.
