You'll want to use your modelling program to do animations, most likely. If you're set on using Unity you'll need a skeleton, and that will act exactly like multiple pieces in those tutorials on... shudder YouTube.
How can I create a skeleton .........
It is called rigging, I believe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5nsVg2BlGY
if there were a simple way to do this, we wouldn't need animators.. You could look up beginner tutorials on Blender 3D (or whatever modelling software you are using), if I recall there's a pretty good one out there on rigging (somewhere, sorry I don't remember the link though).. But of course keep in mind this is not something you're likely to learn overnight, it takes some getting used to
in 3ds max, we can use a BIP (biped), which is basically a standardized rig, and unity supports, I believe (not sure if there's something similar in Blender, but I think so). So you might look into using a bip, but it would still need to be skinned to your model.
