Everyone plays at their own pace, don't even bother to listen how someone glitched their weapon/enchant to do 1 billion damage to oneshot everything, create your own adventures while exploring and do quest here and there or follow the main quest, It's all up to you if you do that or maybe just want to craft something.

Don't worry about levelling skills, it comes automagically as you play and game informs you when you level up, armour skill experience raises when you take hits by using light or heavy armour but not if you have just cloth, the higher the damage you take the more experience you get and most skills are raising by using them, for example hitting some guy with your 1-handed axe raises 1-hand skill using 2 handed sword raises 2-hand skill, that said however unarmed is not that much of an option unless you would use special mod designed just for that.

To be OP usually is turning god mode on and then use console to kill everyone or you create glitched weapon but that is patched now so you cannot do that but you can still create pretty powerful weapons or download one of the god weapon but that is boring in my opinion.

You don't have to worry about building a house they come prebuild all you need to to is buy decoration, unless you have hearthfire DLC and actually wish to build your own house that is better answered here "MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS" http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/The_Elder_Scrolls_V:_Hearthfire

If you do buy the game i hope you have hudreds of game hours of fun with it.

Play the way you want...really. When I first started with Morrowind I was 13 and didn't know what the hell to do...it came all natural over time..it's not like it is a test but just a game.
Open world doesn't mean it is an entrance exam to some school.
I would advice against trying to become OP though...its boring and you'll give yourself restrictions on your own next playthrough for sure(I for example play a NON mage currently...something I never did and it is quite fun^^).

Same as above, I also advise against becoming OP. Most of the time, the proper selection of perks in any of the combat/armor skills will enhance the effects of even the worst weapons and armor in the game. Same with magic. You'll feel weak in the beginning, then get a specific perk in destruction and you can pretty much kill anything with novice spells.

Create saves often, especially after you've done something important or are about to do something important. It's a great game, but bugs happen, reverting to a save that won't cost you hours of gameplay is always good. I don't use console commands, others swear by them, but I don't use them.

Play mod free for a good while until you figure out what you like and don't like.

Have fun

My advice, start it on novice level difficulty, play a few hours so you get the basics of smithing, alchemy, enchanting, combat, magic, selling items, main quests and side quests, how you can do any quest you want etc. Then start the game again on whatever difficulty you like. This game has hundreds of hours play to it and its basically play how you want.

I'm not sure novice level difficulty is necessary for a generally-used setting, although there have been a few times I've turned it down to that when I just couldn't get past a particular fight. I'm rubbish at computer games and I've played on adept since I started out.
Not that there's any shame in starting on novice or anything, but I think the game is pretty manageable even for someone like me on adept (hint: I had to play Minecraft on Peaceful most of the time because I couldn't deal with creepers and spiders appearing out of nowhere!)

Also, yeah, I don't really see the point of deliberately becoming OP, while I don't like being completely unable to kill an enemy and progress (first time I went to Saarthal I had a ridiculous job getting past the first draugr above Restless, and actually found the 'boss' easier) if you can just one-shot everything you come across it can get pretty boring. What are you more likely to remember, the time you crushed yet another dragon with your bare fists (not that this is possible unmodded, AFAIK) or the time you spent five minutes fighting what turned out to be two dragons, depleted most of your massive potion stock, got interrupted by a sodding bear and then a spriggan, then finally killed the second head-on by desperately switching from your standard sword-and-board to frantic dual-wielding of firey/firey soul trap swords as it tried to snatch you with its jaws?

Yes, go do what you want! You can rush through the main storyline, or ignore it and wander around aimlessly. You can be a warrior hero or nefarious mage or just some hunter out in the wilderness. There are no classes, you get to choose what you want to be by doing the things you want to do.

You start out as a prisoner with just rags on your back. But you'll quickly find some minimal armor and weapons that should help you survive until you get to town. You can learn to smith and make your own armor, buy it from a store, or just loot it off of the bandits you kill.

You level up by doing stuff. It's that simple. Every time you use a sword in combat, for example, your One Handed Weapons skill gets a tiny bit of experience, and eventually improves. All skills improve differently. Improve enough skills and you go up a level and get to add points to either Health, Stamina or Magic. When you level up you also get a perk point to spend on a skill if you meet the requirements. Perks can let you do a lot of things, from improving your damage, to letting you smith better weapons, or making your spells cheaper.

Assuming OP means over-powered. That will happen soon enough. Just keep improving your skills and spending your perks. Eventually you'll be a force to reckoned with. The icing on the cake is your gear. The best armor and weapons turns out to be what you can make yourself. If you have maximum Smithing, Enchanting, and Alchemy (the three crafting skills), you can make armor and weapons (and other stuff) more powerful than anything you will find in the game.

You don't need to build a house, you can just buy one. But you have to meet the requirements to buy one. There are five houses you can buy in the vanilla game. If you have the Hearthfires DLC, you can also build a house from scratch. It takes time and some people love it and others hate it. You do have to buy the plot of land to build on, however. Finally there are lots of houses you can get through mods.

Just play)
It's pretty hard to fail at this game. Just stay crouched for the whole game to max your sneak skill fast. I did. Then you can one-shot everything with a bow before they can even see you.

... or create a Breton Priestess of Mara, switch to Legendary difficulty and charge against most deadliest enemies in Skyrim with smile on your face, mace in your right hand, spell in your left hand and - most importantly - your whole body safely behind nearest armored figure.
