Pardon this stupid question,but for a transaction to be included in a packet on the blockchain does it need to contain bitcoin besides tranactions of bitcoin and transfer fees. For instance, if you only wanted a piece of information to be included in the blockchain.
THanks again.

A "packet on the blockchain" is called a block.

In order for a transaction to be included, it must be a valid transaction. This means it must consume outputs created by previous transactions, and those outputs must have some value associated with them. A Bitcoin transaction can include arbitrary data, however this is not advised as it harms the network.
