I was kinda thinking of simply getting the grains and boil the water and put the grains inside in something and let it linger.
is that an option? how big of a pot will I need for a 5 gallon batch? And where do I find info on pots and techniques?
You Tube is excellent, watch many videos and come up with what's best for you. I use a 7.5 gall turkey fryer that came with the burner for $59 at Home Depot, and use converted coolers for hlt & mlt. Also, if you haven't all ready, read Palmer's How To Brew, there is a free edition on line, just type the title in Google.
