You can make a good start at answering your questions by reading Videomaker Magazine, both here on-line and in hard copy. You can also search for similar posts and responses on this Forum.
I’m not trying to trivialize your questions, but rather to suggest that there is an excellent resource here that will acquaint you with the pros and cons of various hardware and software available to the beginner.
Once you think you have some ideas about what you want, check out the reviews of products on-line. These, especially if they are customer reviews such as you can find at B&H, will give you an excellent idea of what users think of each product.
Finally, once you’ve narrowed down the choices, return here to the Forum and see what responses you get.
