you want to.  Once you learn how to use LaTeX, I think you will never

MikTeX is just one distribution of LaTeX.  There are others.  But MikTex
should do you fine, if you are running Windows.

There are many online sites for documentation.  Here is one good place

Here is a great book for absolute beginners (which was me, not too long
