Exclamation Checking Codes?

I may have a two part problem here, one a radiator leak/hose which I will have to dig some more to find where it is actually coming from. I think this may be related to the Reduced Engine Power issue

Two the hesitation sound a lot like VCT solenoid that Pete wrote up a topic on.

This may sound like a stupid question or statement, I have never pulled codes from any vehicle which sounds pretty basic. Do you have to buy an expensive gadget or just take to shop? I've seen guys talk about using a paper clip jumper on older fords(my 1992). I'm new to the 2008's.
