First time home buyer-help me?

I am a first time home buyer. I do not know where to start. I think I have to get pre qualified for the loan before start house hunting. Should I call different lenders to compare the rates and terms?
Can I start searching homes by myself or I have to get an agent?
If I find a home that I like, should I tell my agent about it before make the next move?How much will be the closing costs? Are there any other expenses other than down payment and closing costs at the time of closing?
Please help me
