I definitely recommend the rice hulls, they help with lautering. Being a wheat heavy recipe be sure to lauter it slowly or it could stick.
You could either pitch an American Wheat yeast or S-05, I'd probably use 1056 which is S-05.
And for the fruit you could either rack the beer in secondary onto apricot puree, fresh peeled and cut up apricots (remove stone) or use apricot extract at bottling or kegging.
For a first beer I'd use apricot extract. Your LHBS should carry some. Also your efficiency could be a little low for a first beer, mine was like 63%; so plan accordingly. This recipe is is planned for 1.050 at 72% efficiency.
And for bitterness I used Magnum cause I have a bunch for bittering. I shoot for about 10 to 15 IBUs. This recipe happens to be about 17 IBUs.
If you have any questions I'd be more than happy to answer.
