Genealogy in Switzerland - where to start?

A friend of mine living in the uk wants to do some genealogy research for some long lost friends last located in Geneva and surrounding areas across Switzerland. I have no clue how to go about these things so I wondered if anyone has any hints or tips were to start. Some questions he's asked are:
Where are the records kept?
How accessible are the records and do we have to apply in writing to access them?
Are the processes for access different across cantons?

Any help/advice or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Btw, I used the search function first but wasn't able to locate the information I needed.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Completely hatstand!
