Are hockey skate rentals good to use to learn how to skate?

Don't buy used skates. Get a decent, lower to mid range skate fitted properly and then baked to fit your foot. Fit is the most important thing for you at this point. If you buy used skates, you will likely compromise and wind up wasting money in the long run.
And, since you're an absolute beginner and don't really know how a skate should fit you, make sure you get fitted by someone who really knows what they're doing.
