It is best to buy seeds for butternut squash.
I'm afraid you will have to bide your time until next year to sow the seeds.
Butternut squash is not the easiest to grow, as it needs a long season of good weather to mature. If you are inexperienced, why not start off with courgettes, they are easy, sometimes too easy? But all that family take up a lot of room so think what space you have for everything you want to grow, before you buy lots of seeds.
