Congrats on choosing such a gorgeous lizard You will find info on how to set up a basic leo set up here

And there are plenty of people who will advise on here
Lizards - Reptile Forums

I feed mine locust/crickets/mealworms/dubia and turk roaches as staple diet and waxworms and other such things as occasional treats as they are high in fat .
How often you feed depends on its age etc. Young ones get fed every night while older ones every other night.

You cant feed them dead or frozen/thawed food. They are live food eaters.

Lots of friendly and knowledgable people over on the lizard section make your way over there and ask away
