Of course someone can help you - he's called a professional guitar teacher. Find one and start getting lessons.

There are plenty of pictures and videos of people holding a guitar including some videos specifically showing beginners how to do it. I learnt in the 1970s - long before the internet but I had no problems. I just copied what I saw and followed the instructions in the book I learnt from. Again, it's easy to grasp the basic idea of strumming just from watching other people but whoever or whetever you are learning from should guide you. Even something as basic as strumming takes time to learn, it's not just a matter of being shown how to do it - it takes practice. Holding a guitar and strumming strings are very basic things to do. Just about everything else is harder. If you have problems already then I'd suggest at least a few lessobs from a teacher.
