    You read everything and answer the questions in the introduction area when you log in, in the build server. Then you will be able to look around. All the answers are in the new player guide.

    Also you should have posted this in the " get help" section

    It's just like joining any server. You

    1- Open Minecraft,
    2- Click on "Multiplayer",
    3- Click on "add new sever"
    4- Write "build.mcmiddleearth.com" in the server address
    5- Choose the display name of the server, like "MCME Build"
    6- Then you save the server, (clicking on done)
    7- Click in the server you added and then click on "Join Server".

    When I click add server it asks for server name, I put "MCME Build". Then it asks for server address. I put "build.mcmiddleearth.com", it also has a "server Resource Packs: Prompt/enabled/disabled" option I left on prompt and then clicked done. When I try to join server it says "connecting to server", then "logging in", then I get a "failed to connect to the server"

    Then it's probably a connection problem, check your internet connection and try again.
    Try to join other servers.
    Also ask this in a Minecraft forum too.

    The problem may have been that the main server was down yesterday evening. :)

    Check how many players are online, next time you try to connect. If there's no-one online the chances are the servers down.

    Since Build is up, you should be able to access the server when possible. Oh, also before I forget, welcome to MCME :D
