Visa on arrival is pretty standand anymore for entry to Laos at international checkpoints, including Luang Prabang airport. I'm a US passport holder and obtained visa on arrival there twice. There is a short form to fill out (it always helps to have a pen with you). You'll need to pay the $30 to $35 visa on arrival application fee, and have at least one passport-sized photo to submit with your application. Many Lao checkpoints also charge a $1 after-hours fee if you arrive late or on the weekend. US dollars are preferred for the visa application fee, at least the last time I did it, so best to have $US for this if you can. I've seen folks pay in other currencies, but usually at really awful exchange rates.
There is good information on visas and border crossing on Travelfish. Have a look around. It may help you with this and the Vietnam question you've posted on the other thread too. Cheers.
