DXE supply a ring lug. You can crimp and solder the radial wire to the ring 
lug and then you can bolt the ring lug to the plate using the stainless 
steel nuts and bolts supplied with the plate. I would also apply Penetrox to 
the ring lug and bolt threads before you bolt it up.

a friend told me to not solder radials to the vertical ring/plate and
between them if I am installing an array, like a 4 square. That´s because
can catch some noise.

That´s true?

If yes, how can I solder them? Also if I use a DXE plate to atacch the
radials, I need to solder the wire to terminals, so what type of solder may
I use?

Do you have a type/model (or ebay link) to see what to use?
