So I am just getting into riding harder and I expected things to start breaking but just not so quickly. I am a complete newbie when it comes to fixing my bike although I am learning as I go.
I was riding along a trail yesterday and out of no where a stick/branch decided to get in my spokes and popped two of them out. So, can I fix this and how difficult is it?

Ok so I got two new spokes and nipples( thanks for that) and I have trued the wheel of wobble but now there is a hop in the wheel. It isn't horrible, and probably wont even noticeable if I ride on it. Should I worry about it?.

There are two parts to wheel truing: lateral true (wobble) and radial true (hop). Generally you work on one and then work on the other, until they both are right on. It may take several adjustments to get them both right.
