First of all, you need two Nintendo DS's. Then put the game you want to download play in one of the two DS's. Turn on the DS with the game in it. Start the game. You should then be at the title screen of the game. Use your stylus to click on versus mode. I don't know what game your refering to so go through whatever prosses to get to versus mode. If the game is download play compatable, then there should be two options. To tell if a game can use the download feature check the back of the case and there should be a picture with a DS with black screens and a DS with white screens. Underneath there should be some sentence about download play. Once you are in versus mode there should be something that says something like, "VS. Play" and "VS. Download Play" Press vs download play. Now turn on the other DS. After you touch the screen there should be four options. One long bar at the top that lets you play DS games, a long bar at the bottom that lets you play Gameboy games, a short bar in the middle left that lets you go into pic to chat, and a short bar in the middle right that lets you go into download play. Touch download play. It will then say searching for a software avalible to download. Make the top screens touch and they should connect faster. A picture and the game name should come up on the screen. Touch it. Again, I am not sure what game you are refering to so if needed press ok or go or whatever on the DS with the game. It should then be downloading the game and your good to go.
