ok, here's the deal:

0) EDIT: Just in case it's not obvious to everyone, it will probably only work if you and your friend are on the same server.

1) the ambassador is a bit buggy. you need to visit a major city like sparta pvp and once there you can visit a friends city and the ambassador will have spawned next to the embassy.

2) you need to have that person in your live friendlist. if you don't have any friend yet, ask some1 in chat if he has the embassy and if you can invite him.
EDIT: i'll gonna explain the friend request process a bit better:
right click that person, use "gamer card" which will open his windows/xbox live profile. from there you can send him a friend request. but he needs to open his profile and accept your request before you can see the ambassador in his city

3) the quest i got was to defend my friends main building and wipe out the attackers and a wave of reinforceements.

assuming you get the same quest, here's a trick: restart the quest a few times until you spawn with NO sort of artillery. this means there won't be any enemy towers either!
it might also be useful to try and restart until you spawn as egyptian, they seem to have a healing and convert skill that i didn't have on the greece ones.
EDIT: i have done this quest several times now and the greeks get the healer too.
and i don't care anymore if there are enemy towers or not. if i have ballistas i just kill everything from very far away.

anyway: just take your whole group and start attacking enemies. if you focus attack (select all your group and make them attack one single guy) it will be quicker and safer.

once done, you go back to your friends city, deliver the quest and you'll be 25GS richer ;)

BTW, you can add me on windows live / xbox live as friend if you don't find anyone around. (I am on Alexandria server)

EDIT: seriously? a -1 vote 3 years after writing the solution when the game is already shut down? to the guy who -1 voted: are you retarded?
