There are generally two types of water wells. The first is the shallow dug well, usually completed by hand, or with the use of non-specialized machinery - the well is completed by installing a large casing to hold the hole open, and backfilling around that casing. Then the water can be accessed from above.
The second type of well, a drilled well, involves the use of a water well drilling rig, which is generally a very expensive & complex machine. Typically, most well drillers use rotary drills - these systems use segmented steel drill pipe with a drill bit at the bottom, they then circulate a drilling fluid through the drill pipe, out of the bit, and back up to the surface (coming up between the drill pipe & the outside of the bore hole). The fluid helps to displace the drilled cuttings & cool the bit. Typically, drilling fluids are a mix of water & bentonite clay with other chemical additives, or the machines use compressed air.
When water is discovered, the driller will clean the formation out, install a casing (if one isn't installed while drilling), and screen the formation off. Then water samples can be analyzed for potability, and a pump can be installed to get the water out.
Generally, drilling a well is a complex & tricky business best left to professionals. However, some areas are easier than others.

Plus you will have to run lines from the new well, pressure tank, casing, etc...

A lot... Actually about 12-15$ per ft for the hole.
In a bowl of water use a diamond tip drill and cover the stone with water. you need to use the drill with very little pressure and drill half way then drill from other side to keep from breaking out the sufface of the hole. The drill RPM needs to be at least 10,000 - 15,000 RPM.
If you have to ask then you will more than likely need to hire a water well driller. If you are lucky enough to live in an area where the water table is only 20-30 feet below the ground you could actually dig/drill it yourself. Search "DIY water well drilling" in google.
