Good post Jarick. I'm going to chip in here about the skates and say that your original plan of finding a proper fitting pair of old clearance top-end skate is an excellent one. A heavier set person will put more pressure and strain on the boot/holder of a skate than a lighter person would. That accelerates the breakdown of the skate.
Regarding sticks, it sort of depends on how good your shot is at the moment. If you can't shoot yet, then it doesn't matter too much what flex you use. However I'm going to disagree with Jarick and say that an 85-90 flex is a good starting point.
