Yes, equity dilution does mean to sell equity stake to an institutional investor or an individual investor in return for cash or some other kind of benefit from that investor.

Typically you will decide on a pre-money valuation of the company based on the company as is. Then based on this pre-money valuation you will dilute a % to the investor in return for cash.
