Strength Training Basics- HELP PLEASE
Also, for muscle recovery, try to consume low calorie low fat protein powder in 30 to 60 minutes after your strength training session. This maximizes your muscle recovery (hence building it). I use whey protein that has low sugar, low carb and low fat. Hope this helps.

Strength Training Basics- HELP PLEASE
I will try to answer as much as i can:

1 - You need to do full body training. You don't need to isolate any muscle group at this stage. Focus on core muscle training. Burpees, planks, squats, lunges are awesome. Youtube has tons of full body training videos.

2 - For muscle soreness (I lift a lot so been experienced with this),stretching and/or post strength training cardio helps a lot to decrease the lactic acid in your muscles. Again, this will "decrease" the soreness. It is very normal to get soreness as you are tearing muscle fibers to build muscle. One thing I find helpful is having a warm bath post workout.

3 - I don't know your condition, however, for beginners, I would suggest "body weight" exercises mainly focused on core and abdominal. You need to build up your base to get to the good stuff..

4 - Again, body weight would be a good approach. I would suggest writing down each move, repetition and sets you do and gradually increase these numbers. Progression is the most important thing in strength training. You will first need to know where you are to move forward.
