Like ORH said, pogo is free. Hardwood has a free 30 day trial period, but costs about $25 to keep playing after that.
As to your second question, oddly enough it isn't about just catching cards. I used to think that and saw my rating plummet when I first started online. After a few pointers and lessons from experience, I learned that euchre is a lot like poker in that aggressiveness pays off, and there's definitely some strategy as to how to play certain hands to maximize points. I won't go into detail and bore everyone to death, but suffice it to say that sitting around waiting for that lay down loner to come won't win you too many games.
