"Richard Stallman"n:http://www.stallman.org gives his explanation of what "hacking" is. I think I agree with him:

"Playfully doing something difficult, whether useful or not, that is hacking."

That's the definition people who hack like. To many people "hacking" is what you do when you "break security to gain access to a system". I often use the word "hack" as a ad hoc desperate technical solution. Much like filling a leaking hole in a dam with chewing gum. It stops the leak but just ain't right.

haking means intenttially gaining unauthorised access to a computer system.
the term "hacker" has changed over the last 40 years:
1960s-1970s a hacker is a clever and creative programmer; not destructive; harmless

1970s-1990s hacking starts to become negative; breaking into large computer systems e.g. Govt agencies; spreading viruses; stealing/changing information. also phone phreaking (using phone systems illugally)

1990s-today Hackers exploit the vulnerability of the Internet; very destructive; disrupetive; involving organised crime; increased risk for e-commerce.

hacking the way your thinking is mostly reverse engineering, which you can learn how to do here: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Reverse_Engineering
It has a very steep learning curve though, which is why there are few who can actually do it
