Firstly welcome to SWTOR. It is an amazing game and I hope you enjoy it.

You will find a lot of people telling you not to bother with Mk1 augments. I've only bothered with high level gear and Mk6 (I think) augments. The best you could do is research at Google university and find a good guide, plenty out there. If you want to dabble in augments feel free to try them out with the Mk1's but you will find it will not level up like Orange gear and you will quickly find better gear and equipment to make you wonder why you bothered in the first place.

It is a credit sink so watch out if you get started you don't burn through your cash reserves.

To the crux of the issue: you will need to make the augment slot in the equipment at a modification bench.
Then you will need the actual Augment which can be made with crew skills or purchased off GTN, or they can apparently drop from slicing missions.

Good luck and may the force be with you.
