Given this, can you create better sentences, Crotalito? The others don't make sense.
I will try.

I want to do one lookup about the Julio Chave's story.

This sentence working?

Close, but we wouldn't use the noun in this case, and, if we did, it would be 'a lookup' instead of 'one lookup'. I provided the noun form because I wanted to make sure you saw that there's a difference between the noun and the verb.

Where are you going?
To the library. I want to look up the Julio Chave's story.
You could do that right here on the computer. They're great for doing searches/research.
OK. How do I look up a story?
You use a search engine, like this. You can do a lookup by providing words, or phrases enclosed in quotation marks, that you think will return the best results. Just type in your lookup text here and press enter.
That looks fun. Let me try!

Microsoft Access and Excel use lookup tables.

If you want to find a lost friend or a good restaurant, you can use a lookup directory.
