How do you go about conducting a regression when you have 5 continuous and 3 binary variables?

Can you do it in one operation?

yes you can conduct a regression, you just need to create dummy variables for binary variables and then you are all good in carrying that out in one operation.

that depend on which variable is dependent variable. If the dependent variable is continuous, the operation of the regression is same as the common one. But if the dependent variable is binary, you should use logistic regression
