So I've been following this youtube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJwwcw56d6c

Up until where he invokes the command "find /lib/modules/3.5.7-gentoo -type f -iname '*.o' -or -name '*.ko' | less"
I come across that I have no folder named modules in my /lib/ directory.

I also have no initramfs* in my /boot/ directory

What can I do to fix this?

B0sk0 ... please follow the handbook, that way when you run into issues you can point us to the section (and we don't have to watch the video to see what it is you may, or may not, have done). Also, the handbook will be more current than a video, things change, and the handbook will be more likely to reflect those changes.

No package provides /lib/modules it's created by the act of running 'make && make modules_install' in the kernel source tree. So, I suspect you're missing this directory because either your kernel doesn't match the command (3.5.7 being some years old), or you haven't built the kernel and installed the modules.

The initramfs* can be created via a variety of methods, the handbook covers the most typical method (genkernel), we don't know what this video has you do, so we can't say why something might be missing.

In all such cases refer to the handbook ... that is the primary guide to installing gentoo, and again, if something fails then point us to the section you're at, and explain what seems to fail, otherwise we are either required to watch the video, or guess.

best ... khay
