First, in case you don't have it yet, you need a TeX distribution. The
best place to start is the TeX Users Group:
https://tug.org/
In the right hand column, under the heading “Software”, you'll find the
various options.
For Linux and Windows (but bear in mind I don't really know anything
about Windows), I recommend TeXLive. Also for Linux, many distributions
have TeXLive in their repositories:
https://tug.org/texlive/distro.html ;
but I recommend getting it directly from TUG because you'll get the
latest software from there.
For the Mac, certainly MacTeX is your best choice: MacTeX is TeXLive
plus some utilities and graphical applications.
Also for Windows you have options like proTeXt and MiKTeX, but I repeat
that I don't know Windows.
Once you have a TeX distribution, go to
https://tug.org/begin.html and https://tug.org/interest.html
where you'll find a wealth of links to books and online documentation.
Now ---you can write your LaTeX documents with any text editor (*not*
word processors), but it's easier with a dedicated editor, like
* for MacOS, TeXshop, which comes with MacTeX;
* for Linux, MacOS and Windows,
* TeXworks: http://www.tug.org/texworks/
* TeXmaker: https://www.xm1math.net/texmaker/
* TeXstudio: https://www.texstudio.org/
and many others. I think TeXworks comes with TeXLive for Windows.
I strongly advise you not to install more than one TeX distribution
---if you use Linux and install TeXLive from the repositories, don't
install TeXLive from TUG and vice versa; technically you can, but it can
be a nightmare.
Many journals have their own classes and instructions for their authors,
like the American Mathematical Society:
https://www.ams.org/publications/journals/help/jourhtml-tipslatex
search for them before submitting.
