I have watched almost every tutorial out there and I cant seem to find tips on easing like if i was to make a stick jump on flash, how would i ease him into it, like that.

Easing is just using different numbers of frames during certain moments in a movement to give actions a sense of speed.

Jumping is a bad example, but for something like, say.. punches, instead of animating it so the arm moves the same amount of distance for each frame, you make a bunch of frames leading into it where he barely moves, and then the actual punch should be one or two frames at the very most. Then when he's coming down from it, his arm should stay extended and then come down through more frames with very little movement.

If you use the search function there are at least two tutorials on easing in the Flash help section, feel free to refer to those too.
