I grew delgold tobacco this summer, and I need to know if I have to pick it before frost, and what to do with it then, how to dry it.

Pick the leaves before the frost. You can pick the leaves any time now. For drying, strip the leaves and lay them in a single layer on a bath towel and keep the leaves in a warm dark place until they are crisp to touch. I do not know how you want to use the leaves but store the crumbled leaves in a jar in a dark place. If you have a lot of leaves you might dry them in batches.
