To be honest, if you're unable to click links or use the search functions successfully, you're going to have a hell of a time making a custom.

I try that it's hard to follow when you don't have midi file

I've released about 30 customs and have used a MIDI file for almost none of them. It is very possible to do, but it requires patience, reading, experimentation, and time.

 

Conversely, you could find a MIDI file for a song you like and use that as a basis for your first song. It might not be the first song you want to chart, but it would be easier.

Starting out the amount of stuff that you have to learn can be overwhelming.

My advice is to start with a short relatively simple song and break the process into smaller tasks.

Task 1 - set up your software - install Reaper and plugins etc.

Task 2 - learn to tempo map the song of your choice.

Task 3 - complete your first expert chart - bass might be the simplest to start with or drums (depending on the song).

And so on.

As you work on each task look at videos and documentation that are available here that relate to that topic and gradually build your knowledge and skills.

It still takes me aeons to complete a custom compared to the experienced authors here, but it is fun and fulfilling to complete a task or even a section of a chart and see it in the preview window in Reaper. Good luck!
