Welcome to the forums

You would want to attach to structure for something that heavy, not rely on the drywall to hold it.

How would you go about doing that? Buy some wood and make a frame? I have no idea what I'm doing!

The structure in the wall - the studs. That make any sense to you?

You say you're mounting a 50 lb. light fixture to the wall inside a closet.

What will be, or is, stored in this closet? How close to the nearest shelf or hanging rod will the light fixture be? What kind of lamps (light bulbs) does the light fixture take?
