    You don't add a database to a C# program. However, you can access however many databases you want from a C# program.

    You're going to have to explain what you're asking in more detail.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    I have started a C# program that should allow a user to enter data which will be stored in a data base and now i want to add an SQL sever. How do I go about doing that?

    You don't (add an SQL server). An SQL server is a separate thing that you can connect to in your program. The computer you intend to use may already be running one, in which case you would connect to it; or perhaps you will need to set one up; but it needs to be an independently existing thing.

    You have to install SQL Server(which is an external piece of software) separately from your C# coding program. Thereafter create a database in SQL Server. Once done you will need to connect your C# coding program to SQL Server depending on your program, you will have to configure the database software to be recognized/added in your coding program. Type the code for the connection string in your program to establish a connection and to utilize the database in your program.

    When declaring variables do you use the same data types as those in a class (i.e int16,char )?

    Yes when declaring variables in SQL server you can use the same data type as those in classes. SQL server has a database table creator which would give you options as to what variables are available when making a database.

    There is also SQL Server Compact Edition, which is an embedded database engine that becomes part of your program, and requires no separate server installation. SQLite is another embedded database engine that you might consider using.
    Code:
    namespace life
    {
        const bool change = true;
    }
