How do i do this?

I did this. Index.php is gone now, hopefully it improves SEO.

I highly doubt that it will. Google's smart enough to know that index.html, index.php, and similar are all going to be index pages of a site and are usually configured at the server level to be the response to /.

I heard that if you remove index.php, it helps SEO?

I see no reason why it would help SEO. If anything it could potentially confuse search engines.

I heard from a lot of places that it helps. And instead of it indexing 2 pages, it indexes one. All of the huge forums don't have index.php
Yes it should help. With 2 versions of the same page there is the possibility of ranking spread, so better to fix it. Either remove index.php, set a htaccess redirect or set a canonical tag.
