As is so often the case it depends on what you want to shoot. B&W is fine for many things. Color slide or print is my preference but to each his own.

Slide film is not as forgiving as print so you might want to shoot a couple of rolls first to try it out.

For developing you can try any place that is local to you including Wally World, Walgreens or a camera shop in your area. I live more rural and the local Wally World and Walgreens are less than satisfactory by me.

I send mine off to Dwaynes in Kansas http://www.dwaynesphoto.com. I've used A&I in California and DR5 Chrome in Denver as well. The latter also does infrared film.

Do a Google search for them. They will be happy to not only process and print or mount the film but scan to disc as well. The professional places will offer several levels of scanning depending on what you want to do with it and obviously cost.

If you get into it you will probably want to invest in a scanner but don't worry about that until you get comfortable with it.

The basics of photography are the same in regards to ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, etc. whether you are shooting digital or film.

Good luck and most important, HAVE FUN! ;^D
