What is a macro?
A macro, for the purpose of MMOs, is a quick way of hitting a single button or key which will then do multiple things sequentially, and sometimes conditionally (unsure of this in FFXIV:ARR) if certain circumstances are met. For FFXIV:ARR, they must use the commands in the aforementioned link to work.
Why are they necessary?
Macros are not necessary, per se, but they are a useful tool for those willing to put in only a little extra time to set them up. Rather than hitting multiple buttons, or saying multiple things, you can have a macro button you just hit and it will do this for you.
Scenario: Let's say I am a CNJ or WHM and I want to Raise someone after our group just had about five people die. Then let's say there is another CNJ/WHM. What if we both start casting Raise at the same time on the same target, but didn't pay attention to the fact that we are targeting the same person? It casts at the same time...on the same target. One of them was wasted, since it could have been used on another dead player. There is a 12 second cooldown between Raise casts. Annoying.
Macro Solution: As a CNJ, you could have a macro set up to announce to the group whom you are Raising, as well as cast the actual Raise spell, without typing a thing and only pressing one button.
The Macro: Here would be the macro to do that:
/s Raising <t>
/ac Raise <t>
You prepare this macro ahead of time and assign it to a button. All you have to do to use it is target a dead player and press that button. Let's say the dead player's name is Quina Quen. When you use this macro, the people around you will see you say "Raising Quina Quen", and you will immediately and automatically start casting Raise on Quina Quen.
This is just a very small, basic, two-line macro. If this sounds like a great thing to you (and it is!), then welcome to the world of macros!
Basic Commands to get you started (non-exhaustive list) (Acceptable short-hand is in parentheses.)

/? [command_name] Gives a detailed explanation of specified command. Abbreviations can be used. All command names must be one word or in quotation marks.
