Does anyone know a website that details what (fiction) submissions should look like? Google is overwhelming me...

Standard guidelines for formatting submissions:

Double-spaced
Indent paragraphs (don't use the tabs but set it as a hanging margin in MS Word)
12 point font--Times New Roman is the most common
one-inch margins all the way around
headers with last name/TITLE/page number
new page for each chapter (use page breaks in Word)
