Hello. Well i'm new to this site as long as the hobby. I've looked into it quite a bit though and have friends who are no strangers to this great hobby. I'm buying a 75 gallon tank here within the next few weeks with plans of an african cichlid tank.

Welcome to AA I did African Cichlids for about 2years very cool and active fish. Good luck smart move starting out with a 75gallon its perfect for Africans, You know though it would make a great looking Saltwater tank as well:p

Welcome to AA! A cichlid tank is very rewarding. I recommend doing a fishless cycle before adding fish.

Really depends on the plants - there's a huge thread (I've Jumped Over the Planted Tank Fence) with a ton of info on green stuff.
