1 & 2) You’ll need a small mic mixer and two hard-wired lavaliere mics. The two lavaliere mics plug into the mixer, the mixer plugs into your camera. I suggest a mixer that has four channels so you have room for additional mics or perhaps for a music playback device.
Audio-Technica, Rode and Shure all make reasonably priced wired lavaliere mics.
3) I recommend a mid-range consumer camera — something like the Sony HDR CX550 if you can find one, but there are lots of similar cameras on the market. Be sure it has input for a microphone or mixer. Chances are your camera will come with a remote, which will allow you to start and stop recording while you’re sitting talking with your talent.
