If you’ve read wikis, I think they cover all the equipment you need to get started. I would suggest using FlashDevelop (download) and following the Avoider Tutorial (link) to learn programming in AS3. Note that the avoider tutorial uses different software but you can try that as well. I really recommend using FlashDevelop over the software they use in the tutorial.

If you aren’t apt at programming, you can try http://www.stencyl.com/
