how to equip skills

as far as i can tell, the manual only describes how to use skills in battle, but not how to equip them.

Don't you get skills from lvling up? And you need to cross breed all your demons to gain new combos like every other Shin Megami Tensei?

this is my first time playing any game in the series. when i go to 'skills' i can see the skills i have, but in battle i only have the choice to attack.

In SMTIV, you don't "equip" skills like you do in Devil Survivor. Instead, in order to gain skills, you must level-up your demons until they have learned all their skills, and from there, the demon will "whisper" its skills to you. If you already have a skill the demon is whispering, that skill will "rank up," making it either more powerful or lowering its MP cost.
