Welcome to smfads.com.

Settings.php is a required writable file for Simple Machines. If your Settings.php file is not writable, you surely will run into problems as you cannot edit most of the server settings.

Are you running a Unix server? If so you can try and use CHMOD and alter the permission intervals to 0777 or 0755 using an FTP client.

Refer to:
How do I use FTP? / What is FTP? (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=480)

The file is located in your SMF root directory. It's most likely in ./public_html/

You'll see directories such as ./Themes and ./Sources in the SMF root directory.
