I've always been a Linux fan but I find it so surprising that unlike Windows, it doesn't have software like Real Hide My IP which is a software that allows you to select a country, change your IP and more. In the back of my mind, I know there has to be SOMETHING OUT THERE, that isn't "browser based." Anything from a browser like Tor is weak and useless. You can still be traced. It isn't that I want to use these tools, I just want to learn anything and everything and I like testing things out.
As far as I am concerned, I find
tor extremely simple to configure for simple proxying or VPN use.

Linux is not Windows. There is such software*, but don't expect it to come in your usual
exe format, ready to be clicked and launched. However, many Linux distributions will provide a
torsocks package, which allows you to proxy any application through the ToR network, as long as it is using a TCP-based protocol (HTTP, POP3, IMAP, ...).
* Edit: actually no, there is no such thing as Real Hide my IP. But there is software which does what your looking for. I couldn't seriously compare ToR and this "thing". However, I do understand why this is available on Windows, and Windows only. If you believe that Real Hide my IP provides better service than the ToR network, then you definitely don't understand what you're looking for.
On my Ubuntu system, I was able to install all of this in a single
$ sudo apt-get install tor torsocks
Now, once you've made sure that the
tor daemon is running (
service tor status), you're ready to use
torsocks to proxify your browser, your mail client, and so on:
$ torsocks chromium-browser $ torsocks thunderbird ...
Untraceable ? There is no such a thing, but you can delay the time.
First you should check VPN stuff, For me I'd suggest openVPN, it is quite common nowadays.
