Check out the gear lists on the links above as a good starting point. Whole books have been written on this and that stove thing is about like the tents or hammocks arguments. The WhiteBlaze forums will have a lot of gear info on them.
I am a fan of the Mosquito hammock that JRB sells for a beginner. If you have a good 20 degree bag this hammock has a pocket for a basic foam pad and is easy to use. I have a couple friends that wanted to convert to hammocks but wanted to use thier bags and pads. This has worked good for them. You will need a tarp. They run from about $30 up from various places discussed in previous threads on this forum and Whiteblaze.
Good Luck and keep it light to enjoy the trip. Light does not have to be expensive. Just don't skimp on the sleeping insulation choices.
