If your website is not using any CMS, it is extremely easy to add the AdSense code. You just have to

If you are using a WordPress website, you will need to create a text widget and place your ad codes in that (for sidebars or other widget areas.) Or simply use the plugins like AdSense Plugin WP QUADS which allows adding any type of ads on different sections of your website. You can refer to their FAQ section to know how to use those plugins.

I have a WordPress website, so should I use the plugin that you have mentioned? Or do you have any other recommendations?

The WP QUADS plugin is the best option as long as you are not planning to extremely customize your ads and ad placements. However, you could also try any one of the following AdSense plugins.

I personally tried many AdSense plugins which allows adding ad codes to the posts and pages of the WordPress. Among all of them, the WP QUADS plugin provided the best results. It is actually a revised version of the Quick Adsense plugin which was one of the best in its kind. So, WP QUADS might be the best choice. But as @LakshmiPrasanna listed, any one of those plugins can also do the job.
