Beginner seeking weightlifting workout routine advice

Can you afford a trainer? It’s totally fine if not, it’s definitely luxury. Even for a few sessions it would be very beneficial. I had one the last half of the year, and I learned a lot.

As far as your workout, I say do whatever works for you. Don’t overthink it unless you have a really specific goals. I personally like to do as few exercises as possible, so when I go, I just stick with compound exercises: squats, overhead press, bench press, deadlift, and bent over rows.

I’d say for 3, do more compounds then isolation on the areas you care about like your arms. Then for 5, don’t worry about DOMS, you can work out and it’ll go away. For 2 it’s about your goals, endurance is more reps at a challenging but lower weight, and you can work your way up.

It’s better to see a trainer though if you can, because there’s a lot of knowledge they can give you.
