There are many ways to pickle cucumbers, peppers, etc.

Are you planning on putting them prepared in jars with a hot brine over them, then water bath canning?
OR
Are you planning on fermenting them for a while-a week to many months and then canning them (maybe by pasturization)?

I don't really know. THe brine one sounds like I would like it more but the other one I know people who have made peppers using the long process and they come out really good. Which one is easiest?

The easiest is the quick canning method with brine.
Cut them in spears or slices or leave whole, put in sterilized jars, make a brine (many recipes), pour over top to within 1/2-1 inch of top, clean top, put on sterilized lids and rings. Put in water bath, bring to a boil for 10 minutes, take out, let cool.
I'm sure someone will have a great recipe for you. Do you like dill pickles or sweet or other?
