How do you do it? Not how to navigate the BIOS but voltages and temps.
What sort of voltages and temperatures should you go up to for each component when overcooking?
By how much should you increase each time?

Overclocking is tricky. With new motherboard it's easy since they have one-click capabilites but if you have a older BIOS version you have to do it manually. There are lots of guides to do it and it's a lot of testing. Changing clocks and voltages then stress testing to make sure it doesnt fail etc etc.
You will have to look online or go to http://www.overclockers.com/forums/ to really get a decent understanding

There are plenty of guides on how to overclock but the actual process is more of an art. There are many many many combinations of hardware, therefore there are many different combinations for levels of voltage and so on.
Start by reading what others have achieved with your CPU and Motherboard. That should give you an idea of where to start and tweak from there.

What we need to know is what parts you are running in terms of:
From here, we'll be better able to tell you, possibly from own knowledge, how to overclock those specific parts, since each chipset/cpu/vendor has different methods and settings.
General tips are, push the multiplier or FSB in small increments, don't mess around too much with voltages. After each increment check temps and voltages using something like CPUZ or Speedfan, both are free.
I'll be able to give you more information if you give me some of the information I asked for above though.
