Depending on the game, it can be very hard to port games.

But here are some basic steps:
1. Make sure you have devkitPPC, make, libogc, and libSDL all ready (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/DevkitPPC & [wiibrew.org]).
2. Make a directory on your computer and call it something like $PROJECT-wii.
3. Checkout the source of the Project to $PROJECT-wii/source. (search Google $PROJECT svn).
4. Download a sample Makefile (http://smw-wii.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Makefile)
5. Run make.
6. See what happens.
7. Try to correct any errors that occur.
8. Repeat steps 5-7.

Also what game are you trying to port?

You also might want to try the IRC channel (http://wiibrew.org/wiki/IRC).
