NoviceHerbs.......perhaps if you divided the herbs into some general groups such as Annuals, Perennials and shrubs and looked up their origins ( which gives you an idea of the conditions they require ), it may well make your task easier.
It's also a good idea to start by growing those herbs you expect to use - culinary or otherwise and then expand your range to suit your tastes and knowledge.
The composition of your planting medium could easily be worked out if you look at each type of herb - you will inevitably make mistakes ( all gardeners are guilty of that ) but make a note of your failures and learn from them.
Follow Pansyface's advice and get yourself a good book and then experiment. If you have specific problems or queries, you will find that someone on here will be happy to offer advice based on their own experience.
Your particular location and conditions, expertise and time you have to look after your plants will no doubt differ from others - you will need to learn how to adapt your growing regime to suit your own situation. All part of gardening
