You need to turn off your main water valve, drain down the water system. (Open faucets on all levels) Then cut the pipe with a tubing cutter at approximately 3" from the wall. (Closer if you want a cleaner look).
Buy a 1/2" compression angle stop, and an escutcheon. You dont need threads, the angle stop will attach to the copper pipe and mechanically tighten. You will need 2 crescent wrenches.
Before you put on the angle stop, place the escutcheon (shiny metal ring that covers hole) on the copper pipe and slide it back to the wall.

For best results, clean about an inch of the pipe next to your cut with an emery cloth so it is shiny.

You will also need a toilet supply line that will connect from the angle stop to the toilet.

All Home Depot stores and others carry these things, and the staff should be able to demonstrate how it all works.
