GAPPS stands for Google Apps... That includes stuff like the gmail app, google maps, google goggles, etc.

you can find some of these apps on the market, but not necessarily all of them. (I couldn't download gmail from the market)

Without GAPPS you have no Market, as Market is included in GAPPS.

Use archiver program (such as 7zip, WinRar... etc) to open, delete all unneeded and flash

What's unneeded?

I happen to have a problem installing gapps, if you would be so kind as to have a look at it here, I'd be most appreciative.

I don't ever recall having to flash gapps with cm7. Please correct me if I'm wrong. However I've had to flash gapps with ICS and jellybean.
