    I recommend not thinking about GIS SE as being an online GIS tutor. For your questions to be answered here they should as much as possible describe not just what you want to do, but precisely what you have tried and where you are stuck trying that.

  • Can we know which software you are using? What format your original data is in?

Google Earth itself will give you an excellent georeferencing experience.

Go to menu Add and select Image Overlay. Select your image in the Link field (by clicking on Browse button).

You can control green handles on and around the image to fit it to desired location. Then hit OK to finish.

To save it as a new kmz file, go to Places panel and right click on the layer, then Save Place As....
