I have never fed my fish any live food, but I have heard a lot about it and want to try it. What kind of live food should i feed my bettas? Where can I find it? and is it pricy?

Bloodworms, mosquito larvae, california black worms and brine shrimp are just some that you can feed, I usually find my foods in my pond, or my LFS and there not pricey at all from my LFS

Ok thank you. Another thing. I have a misquito killer in my bark yard that just lets out carbon dioxide to attract the misquitoes and then it sucks then up, and puts in a bag untill they die or starvation.
Could I feed these mosquitos to my fish>

It's the larvae you are wanting- place a bowl of water outside and collect the larvae from it- cleaning the larvae with clean water in a net prior to feeding. (May not work due to it now being winter and in Chicago, that water will be ice in a short while lol)
Feeding adult squitos can be dangerous, as you don't know what they were feeding on prior to becoming trapped, as well as whether they came into contact with pesticides.
