Cool Where to go? Beginner in Aosp building/porting

Good day, I just want to have an advise, probably in terms of resources, articles and tutorials about:

1. How can I compile an android source code?
2. I have a 2.7Ghz Dual core, 2GB Ram, and ubuntu x64, is it possible to build(kitkat) with this PC?
3. Is creating custom rom, different from building from source?
4. Can you give me an example(any) how to port the aosp for other phone?
5. After I made the Rom, how can I test it without flashing in a real phone for beta testing and risk prevention?
6. Can you site informations regarding my question, I am a beginner in Android source building/porting and are the things I have to learn first before diving into android rom development?

Thanks in advance
