Just go into any branch and tell them you wish to open a checking account. They'll sit you down with a representative and he/she will explain the different types of checking accounts they offer.

1. Go to bank. 2. Ask to open an account. Hardly rocket science

Find a bank that offers a free account with direct deposit (I know that bank of america has one) and open a checking account there. Since you're 19, you don't need your mom with you to open it. Take 2 forms of ID with you to open the account. It will probably take around 45 minutes.
