Need Someones help!

The questions are great; keep them coming!
Does the tank come with the cichlids and everything?
The tank having freshwater in it previously won't be problem...
Are you checking craigslist for setups?

Well keep asking questions to build up knowledge before starting a tank. That is a very important part of the process.
A good example is your fish choices, as tangs are very easily stressed and need to be very large tanks to remain healthy. Being on a budget, it would be a waste of both money and a beautiful fish.
Check out liveaquaria.com and you can start getting ideas on what you want to do for a tank. Then you can make sure the fish you are selecting are reef safe, since you are thinking about doing so later on down the line.

From looking at the picture, it does look like a 55... Not wide enough to be a 75? Does the owner have the dimensions listed?

Looks like a 75 to me. A nice stand and a tank. Everything else isn't really usable...the LED lighting would be fine for a fish only until you decided to try out corals and upgrade the lighting.
