Welcome to hydro! There is a lot to learn grasshopper! Go slow and read. Tutorial on youtube. Read, surf the web and learn. Seedlings are one way, cloning is another way. Start with seeds and like Dado says start with a system like described. Seeds will sprout in the rapid rooter, keep moist, gentle light and warmth place them in a plastic covered tray that will capture the moisture. It will germinate the seed. Once the seed has sprouted and roots start to extend through the sides,bottom transfer to rock wool.
There is so much to say and so little time to say it. Do you have a hydroponic store close by? Great source of info and remember there are no dumb questions to ask the only dumb one is the one not asked.
The benefits from Hydro is remarkable, patience,planing and performance will produce a product that will be amazing and in half the time as earth grown. Go slow and learn as you go, there will be dissapointments however remember "rome was not built in a day"
Go forth and Grow
