Noob here also. I feel your pain.
I hate being new at forums, it is sometimes hard to get answers.
Best thing to start is use the search function and then step away from the general question and kind of piece by piece ask questions .

Map out like you have, search the specific pieces and then hit the TECHNICAL questions, HOW, WHAT, WHY, WILL IT WORK and then most are great at helping from...
