re: hand holding
re: brokers do not except cash, must be a check deposited into your account.
review the above list of discount brokers with minimum donations required to open an account.
When making a purchase for the first time, use limited orders only. Same for when selling.

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/gtc.asp#axzz2CjSRxoAB when buying the stock, check off the box GTC 'good 'til canceled" meaning....tell the broker to keep trying for a given amount of time until the deal is done and the stock has been bought or has been sold.
If you need hand holding for the first time, I would recommend that you visit the office of a broker such as Scottrade and they will gladly walk you through the procedures step by step. Or ask a close friend or a family member for guidance in making your first purchase.
