That is the tutorial.
Is the computer free to 'experiment' with?
Or do you need to keep, say windows, on it?
Have you watched the demo video?

Your English is fine for forum use, no worries.

If the PC is free to use/experiment with and you do not need to keep windows or anything, I would suggest you start with a test install and see how far you get.
Linux may be new, but it's much easier to get used to than windows, and more intuitive (I had barely touched Linux until this August when I did my first LMCE install).

You buy a WinMCE remote, in the package is a remote and a USB IR device that will work as a remote for your TV and skybox, as for DVD player... you will have that built into the LMCE box.
