    Wax the string often enough to keep it from getting dry and fuzzy looking. It can depend on the weather and how much you shoot. Arrows and proper spine depend on length of draw and draw weight, point weight, fletching.

    the only true must add on to your bow is a rest... all the other stuff is optional.

    a sight, rest, stabilizer, peep(i know dave's gonna disagree with this one), i recommend using a d-loop, a good release. quality arrows.. that's about it.

    Smile getting started

    First and foremost make sure your draw lenght is correct, next for beginners is to have a kisser button , peep sight this will allow you to learn to anchor consistently by doing so helping you to become a better shooter. Check your draw weight then choose an arrow with correct spine stiffness. Please feel free to ask any more ? you may have , i hope this helps you in your archery journey
