Timelapse-more confusion

I have been trying quite unsuccessfully at doing timelapses. I bought the Timelapse book that Mike was talking about and it says to set the aperture to a large number so more of your field is in focus and a low ISO to control noise.

So, is this the f ratio setting on the camera or is it on the lens? I have several I can choose from.

It also says that the larger the number, the smaller the hole, the better depth of field, but i was just reading Greg Bradleys attempts at "bramping" and he is using a small f number, wide open, and a high ISO.

If you were shooting from day to night, how can you change your f ratio on the fly to compensate.

I am not overly knowledgeable when using daytime cameras. What am I missing?
