I was wondering if anyone knew how to create SKU numbers or what the process of obtaining these are? Please let me know if you do. It would really help! Thanks!

Every SKU is assigned a unique identification number (inventory or stock number) which is often the same as (or is tied to) the item's EAN or UPC. SKUs may be a universal number such as a UPC code or supplier part number or may be a unique identifier used by a specific a store or online retailer. Many retailers use their own SKU numbers to label products so they can track their inventory using their own custom database system.

You may want to check with a company like Paxar / Avery Dennison. They provide price tickets and hangtags that utilize UPC's / SKU's. They may be able to help point you in the proper direction.

I have never used this software, but the following software may be some help to you.
Simms Software : The SKU Configurator can be used to determine the composition of the SKU number. Selection of some characters from the item's category, subcategory, vendor's part number, manufacturer or vendor will add them to the SKU number's format. Users can instead choose that an auto-generated number to be part of the SKU.

Also, check out MSS Software.

Learn more about Stock Keeping Unit.

To form SKU, the first letter of every word can be taken and a unique number can be added with it.

You can enter any number against SKU, if you are using any shopping cart then you can also use your post or product id. if this is about your POS then ask your vendor to add SKU. 

Easy and there is no standard you have to follow. Could be an alphanumeric for name of model, color, size
