I've heard that you can use ads to pay the bills of your site.

1. How do you receive the money?
2. Do you only get paid if users click on the ads?

You receive the money from whomever you decide to offer ads from, whether it be Yahoo, or Adsense, or any other number of schemes. You only get paid when people actually click on the link, and you usually actually only receive payment when some threshold has been reached, like $100 or something. This may give you a better idea of how things work:

So how does BC pay the bills if no one clicks the bad ads (Registry cleaners, etc.)?

They don't. As far as I know though, BC is self sustaining. Grinler would better be able to answer though.

The long and short of it though us that you need plenty of visitors to your site, and the links need to be relevant. I know that Grinler has spent some time making sure that Google delivers decent links. The other part of the equation is that in order to have plenty of visitors, you need good, original content. If you do not have the content, you will not get the visitors. If you do not get the visitors, you will not get the clicks.
