I've Never Grown a Tomato in my life. Advice needed please?

I live in BC Canada. Zone 8b. I want to grow a couple of tomato plants in pots this summer. I need to know a couple of things first? What kind of tomato is a good one to start with? The only kind I have heard of is Beef Steak. What size/kind of pot should I use? Soil mixture, watering and fertilizer? What kind of insects are likely to attack? What insects or diseases should I watch for? Do the flowers mean that is going to turn into a tomato? How long does it take to grow until you can eat it. Sorry for all the questions but I'd really like to know. Thank you very much to you all.
