Didn't you say you're going to a trainer? That's generally what they do.
If I'm mistaken or if you're looking to just start a program on your own, try the Body For Life program. It's a very good beginners program to get you started with a good basic conditioning and will help you adopt some good exercise/diet habits. One thing to note is that the guy that wrote the book also owns EAS, so he plugs his products for the diet, but theyare absolutely not necessary to make it work. Check it out.

start of light depends if you want to get toned or ripped usally i bench 70 to 90 pounds to get toned but max out at 160 try gaining some weight
There really is no exer phys theory to support this. Muscle fibers either fire or they don't. Some muscles with either a predominance of fast or slow twitch fibers respond better to certain weight/rep schemes but, thats about it. Volume (with adequate nutrition) is the key differentiator to gaining lean mass.
