Getting back on topic, there is a "sticky" post in the propagation forum, title similar to "Very easy sterilisation method". That is a seed growing method that is probably the easiest to implement.
Growing orchids from seed is a very slow process (takes years). You can practice part of the process by buying a flask of orchid seedlings and growing them into mature plants (a web search should reveal many sources for flasks). This can be done while you are growing your own plants from seed.
BtW, be wary about orchid seed offered for sale online. A lot of that is fake.
