varying degrees of skill? yeah, it's a good idea. Make sure they know you suck at hockey though. Some people hate dealing with that even in a low level rec league(My view was they could shove it. I don't deserve to play because I'm, not as good as you? You can join a better league. I can't)
As far as gear, phone around to second hand gear stores as tell them you are looking to buy a complete set of hockey equipment. Some will give you a 10% discount. Over here, I can pick up smaller skates from goodwill for about $15, and if cash converters has em, same price. Have to be a smaller size, like a men's 9 or under usually. I am a men's 7, and lots of teen boys outgrow those.
