First welcome to apc! Check out this link for some great info for beginners: http://www.aquatic-plants.org/articl...ges/index.html
For plants you might want to look at the plantfinder here on apc and use 'low light' to filter your results. Once you think you might want certain plants, you can put a 'wanted' ad on the for sale forum and see if any member has some they can offer, or check some of our sponsors for plants as well.
It sounds like you don't have to spend too much, since you have the tank, filter, I assume heater as well. So you will need appropriate lighting, plant nutrients (ferts), and perhaps some substrate modification/addition. Welcome aboard!
