Well for me to help, I need to know what wax you are leaning towards and what size you want to make.
Pillar, votive, container candles?
What other things are important to you about your candles?

What kind of mold you use is really a matter of preference, metal, plastic etc. Or you can use things you have around the house like yogurt containers. The type of wick will depend on the type of wax, size of the candle or if it's a container candle. I'd suggest getting a few books on candle making and reading up on it more. There's nothing more frustrating than making a candle and not having it come out or burn right.
