Don't call yourself a noob, everyone has to get over a learning curve in this hobby.
Anyways, may I suggest to go for a biotope. Since the gouramis and rainbowfish are from Asia you can get maybe danios or other fish in the water parameters. As well you could just make a huge community tank or head over to a Amazon/South America biotope. You could be able to stock tons of tetras and corydoras. As well having a couple discus swimming around as your prize fish. But, do whatever you like, its your choice. Now, for plants, easy ones are java fern, java moss, anubias, water wisteria, and amazon swords. My only suggestion is to have a co2 kit for the plants. You can read up on all the fish and plants in the Tropical Fish Profiles. Good luck with your tank.
