Mixing is either done with a program (Virtual DJ, I think Ableton Live too) or with turntables and a mixer. The idea is that you have one track playing on your first deck (100% volume), and you load up a second track on the second deck (0% volume). You beatmatch the second track so that its the same tempo as the first one and cue it up at the point you want, then you press play at a decent point like at the beginning of a sixteen bar measure or at a second drop or something. Then slowly you can slide the crossfader over from deck one to deck two and it slowly adjusts the volumes automatically, bringing deck one's volume down while increasing the volume of deck two. This is a pretty basic example of how mixing works.. EQs aren't used except for very specific effects.

I will let someone else explain the 4/4 bar thing because I don't think my terminology with that is up to snuff.
