The above is a python emacs configure file. Where should I put it to use it? And, are there any other changes I need to make?

This appears to be a .emacs file, its a configuration file for emacs. Generally you place the file in your home directory /home/your-user-name/ or you can place it in the sub-directory /home/your-user-name/.emacs.d/ in your home directory.

Also one thing to note about this .emacs file is that it is expecting to find a bunch of additional configuration files in /home/your-user-name/.emacs.d/configs. So you will need to download those files as well from the original URL.

Additionally the first two lines hard-code the path /home/alex as a load-path, so if alex is not your user name, you will have to change those two lines.
