The literal translation for LACHEN is LAUGH.

But, in german is a slang use "LACHENN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"??????????

Because if you think something is funny you dont say "LAUGHHHHHHHHHH" say, HAHAHA, HEHEHE, etc.

I want to know if the expression LACHEN is a real "I'M LAUGHIN'" or a expression like "GOOD!"

So...You are saying that some people are using Lachen as a slang? Isn't Lachen is spelled with a "U" like La'u'chen? I apologize for my translation. I am kinda fluent with German. :(

It's spelled "Lachen", no "u".

I'd need more context to be sure, but if you've been reading this as slang online, they're probably using it to describe the action, much like an English user typing something like *dies with laughter*.

I'm not quite sure how you mean this, but I will try to explain you the use of "lachen".
In verbal communication you don't really use it as a slang but rather in written sentences, for example if you are chatting with someone and you write something funny and then you write *lach*. It can be compaired with the use of *lol*.
But in general "Lachen" is 1. Das Lachen = The Laughter (Subject);
2. used as a verb: Ich lache-Du lachst-Er/Sie/Es lacht; Wir lachen-Ihr lacht-Sie lachen. (lachen-to laugh).

I hope this will make it clearer to you :)
If you have some more questions to this, just ask ;)
