One of my dends is finishing flowering and she got again a kind of pocket at the bottom of one of the flowers and it's full of seeds, (I think they're seeds).
There are lots of very small round black balls.
What should I do with those?

Try googling. There's lots of info out there.

Orchid seed is very, very fine just like dust and is a dirty white in colour. It is so small that you could not tell the shape of the seed without a microscope. Whatever these black balls are they are not seeds.

Even if they were seeds then you would need sterile conditions and equipment to germinate them.
