    Add a theme and content. Vague answer for a vague question

    .org is the one you want if you have your own hosting

    When you install wordpress on your site you can install plugins directly from your wordpress dashboard. No need to visit wordpress.org directly but you can if you want.

    To make it easier on yourself just pretend wordpress.com does not exist. It has nothing to do with creating your own hosted site
