minetest.register_npc()?

No, just kidding. Creating NPCs is very hard... Do you really want to do this? Even I never did that before!

You can study other mods using npc's. Change little pieces of code and animations, look at the results and learn. If you get a npc working you must also consider learning how to make 3d models (2d is less popular now) or at least learn how to implement them if others are willing to make them for you.

Some of the mods are more known than other. Maybe this one (celeron55's mobs (2d)) helps you to start with.

Good luck!

Btw, this is the wrong forum section. You should have posted this in "Modding General"

It's pretty hard but you could always take Mob Frameworks zombie or NPC trader, recode it and retexture it. That could work too

*sigh*

Use skincraft for your skinning needs. Stu has released the NPC Framework - see it here - which makes creating NPCs much much easier! Go check out his code. There's an API to easily add new NPCs. :-)
