Technically, this should go in the above section, but...

There's a tab, located at 1/3 to the right from the top-left corner of the VAB, called "Action Groups". Click it. A whole bunch of little-er tabs pop up. "Abort", "Stage", and "Gear" are among them, but you are looking for the ones that say "Custom[insert number here]" They correspond to the number keys: Custom01 = 1, Custom09 = 9, etc...

Click on one of them. Then click on a part, say, an engine. In one of the little side tabs, some boxes should appear. Click "Toggle" or "Toggle Engine". Now, when you hit the corresponding button on the keyboard/numberpad, the engine will activate-deactivate via a press of the number.

Fiddle with it a little, it's really fairly self-explanatory.

Well, some of it is pretty non-explanatory. :D But that's okay, because you can post any additional question you have as well, sam1133.

Looks like you're sorted but for you and anyone else wanting more than the stock VAB/SPH action groups can offer there are two mods which might be of interest: 1) AGM (Action Group Manager) allows you to re-configure your action groups in-flight, should you find you've forgotten to set them up or done so incorrectly. AGX (Action Groups Extended) goes beyond that and lets you create up to 250(!) action groups in the VAB/SPH or in-flight. Should your keyboard inexplicably not have 250 spare keys AGX provides a clickable-button window for the groups you define.
