I've been reading about using dollar store squeeze bottles for frosting cakes and cookies. My question is, how do you attach the various decorating tips to the bottle?

I think what they  may be referring to is if they are flooding their cookies.  You use a really thin, kind of runny icing and it spreads out and makes a smooth layer.  I did a quick search and found this link with some pics that  demonstrate it.  I think some may use the bottles with melted candy melts too.  You wouldn't be attaching an icing tip to the bottle.  With your icing tips you would use a bag, parchment paper cone or even a plastic baggie in a pinch.

I don't know about dollar store store generic squeeze bottles, but here are some with the tips.

Generic plastic sqeeze bottles?  ONLY if they say "food safe" on the label.

 

You can certainly use freezer-weight zipping bags, with the corner cut off for the tube.  We KNOW those are food safe.

My guess is the dollar store ones would be like what they use for ketchup/mustard.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, dear, but the translation program you are using is making your posts incomprehensible.

I have tried to use Google translate to translate recipes on some eastern European blogs and they sometimes come up like carver's posts. I think the following might be what is meant:

 

"Melt butter in pot over medium heat and mix in brown sugar and cream. Heat to a simmer, then pour into mixing bowl.  Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla flavor. Beat with an electric  hand mixer to a soft peak stage  (alternately till it is spreadable).  Thanks!!"

 

I think it is meant to be a caramel (or at least a brown sugar) frosting.  Hard to tell without amounts.

Yes there are those. They sometimes come with labels for various foods. 

There are also generic bottles-for-icing that come with tips--you can see the coupler in the package.

 

And then there are the very very cheap bottles that are used around here for hair dye. I would stay away from these.

ah that does look a lot better, even tho I don't really see a relation with this thread

I know exactly what you mean, English is not my first language and I have used google translate in the past and is not good at all unless you just want to translate one word or very short sentence
