    There are plugins for just about everything you could want. Depends really what you are planning with your site but as a basic guide:

    An SEO plugin such as yoast or all in one SEO.
    WP Super Cache
    Social Share plugin

    Probably more but these are what I start off with whenever I create a new site.

    You can get image plugins, video plugins, stats plugins, adsense plugins etc. There are literally thousands, probably something for any imaginable task you want to complete on your wordpress site.

    Your plugins will depend on what you want to use your blog for.

    Except a security plugin, those should be on everyone's blog.

    A purpose/motto will help to identify your question in a more apt manner. Every website serves a different purpose. Let us know in which category does your website fall? As my pals suggested, the security and SEO plugins are must to have for a website. You will need more for a better website.

    Just google it, but keep in mind, don't install too many of them.

    You would certainly need a cache plugin to reduce your site loading times, something like Quick Cache.

    It all depends the plugin you use, the content, the tools you need for your blog, do your own research , does not matter if you fail, keep on going and you will learn , always do your best.

    Depends on the website. You should install basics like spam protection, security and plugins for SEO.

    Here is a wise advice for you. Do not use any plugins w/o a serious need. Every additional plugin slows down your site and generates additional server load. Keep you WP installation clean and Google will appreciate that.

    I would highly recommend you to install security Wordpress plugins like iThemes and WordFence.
