You need to use Soul Trap or a Soul Trap enchanted weapon on an enemy and kill them. When they die if there is a soul gem in your inventory that can hold their soul then the soul will be captured by it.

Soul Gems can be used to enchant equipment and recharge enchanted weapons.

you can buy them either empty of filled with a soul, if theyre empty you need to either get a soul trap spell or enchant an item with soul trap. you then use the filled soul gems to enchant items at the arcane enchanter to enchant weapons/armor

Also, human enemies require Black soul gems. Nothing short of that can contain them. Souls always go to the smallest possible gem, but you can waste high-level gems this way.

For example, if you only have Grand gems, and you trap and kill a Petty-level monster, its soul will inhabit one of your Grands, which is a major waste.
Look, for the last time: Kirby has explained it over and over!
