Getting Started: What's the first step?

Hello, amateur ROM Hacker here, can't really change my Username, but I'm known on Amino by the name "October", and I use Gothorita as my Pokésona, ANYWAY...

I've had an idea for a ROM Hack of Pokémon Gold for a few months now, ever since I went back and played Pokémon Blue for the sake of Nostalgia, as well as Unova Red here on Skeetendo, and I've spent some time compiling all of the ideas I've come up with and feel like it's better late than never to start asking for help and advice (since I'm entirely new to this kind of ROM Hacking) anyway, I'd like to know what Programs, Disassembly, Resources, and knowledge I need to start out with, I'm pretty self-taught, so hopefully I can pick it up quickly!
(>^w^<)

Things I already have set-in-stone ideas for are:
-Location (the Real-World Location that my fictional Region will be based on)
'->Important landmarks, Towns/ Cities, & Routes to take
-Story/ Plot
-Characters
'->Player Character
'->Gym Leaders/ E4
'->Rival
'->Professor
'->Evil Team
-Pokémon
'->A mix of Official Pokémon, both Commissioned & Original Fakémon, and Regional Variants of Original Pokémon
the only thing I really lack are the resources and the know-how, so any help would be extremely appreciated, I plan to credit all those who helped me and do the best I can to properly repay everyone for any help I get! <3

Hi,

This thread is a bit outdated, but Danny did lots of work putting up this stuff a few years ago. You could start off from here: https://hax.iimarckus.org/topic/6675/

pokecrystal is a good base to start working on these days however. There are separate tutorials for that in the pokecrystal github repository wiki: https://github.com/pret/pokecrystal

Sorry for the late reply, I had family and holiday stuff to worry about... ( '^-^)
OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! ^w^ You have no idea how much this means to me that you helped me, if there's any I can repay you, anything at all, (besides crediting you for the help) like adding you in as a trainer, including a Fakémon you made, anything at all, you name it! <3

Don't worry about it :) I didn't do anything but handed over links to places where you could start.
I do advise you to check pokecrystal though.

SO MUCH has happened since we last spoke, and I've come SO FAR with progress since then, all thanks the the seemingly insignificant morale boost you gave me by pointing me in the right direction, but it wasn't insignificant in the slightest, it was the very first step I needed to take in order to start working on my dream, and for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. ÚwÙ
So much has happened, there's just too much to say, but I'll provide links to all the important things.
And, I wanted to know if there was anything I could do to repay you, like making you a Trainer in the game. If you want, here's the Pokédex for my Region, the Fomarté Region:
