Hi N2, it sounds like you're asking either "how do I write a business plan" or "teach me everything about the indie game scene but don't overwhelm me."

For the first, you can easily Google "how to write business plans" and you can read http://sloperama.com/advice/lesson29.htm

For the second, nobody can do that. You need to learn about funding options, development/production methodologies, business/employment laws, and business models (monetization models). That's a lot to wrap your head around, and it's a lot to ask somebody to teach you without overwhelming you.
