If you want to go the Asterisk from scratch route, you would do well to 
pick up a book on the subject. Since you seem comfortable with English, 
"Asterisk: The Definitive Guide" is a good place to start. This will teach 
you how to build an Asterisk system from the ground up. Depending on what 
you want to do, this may also be overkill.

There are Asterisk distributions that already come with a GUI front end 
that could make this all a lot easier to set up. AsteriskNow (includes 
Asterisk and FreePBX Gui) is a good choice as would be Elastix (Asterisk + 
FreePBX GUI + the Elastix GUI). These are often much easier to set up for 
the Asterisk newbie. Either of those should be able to easily handle what 
you want to do.

Even if you do go the route of a pre-made distribution with a GUI, the 
Asterisk book is still useful to have. It really gives great insight into 
the software and will help if you ever have to troubleshoot from the 
command line.
