If it’s for Raspberry Pi then you can just initialize the lcd via spi like what the Pimoroni Hyperpixel is doing.

Re: Where the F#*k do i start?

Start with a Pi zero. Buy one and a cheap usb controller or a usb keyboard will do for now. Format your sdcard and install RetroPie. Now connect the Raspberry Pi to an hdmi tv or monitor.
