A good start would be to read through the Installing Lazarus wiki page, and in particular the Windows section. I suspect that all of the basic components required to get Lazarus running are packaged in the installer for your OS (Lazarus, FPC, binutils).  I usually compile from source (and mostly on Linux), so I can only give limited advice.

Thank you ccrause it's true , for windows , 32 bit , i only need the lazarus-2.0.0-fpc-3.0.4-win32.exe , it contains both FPC/Lazarus in a single .exe package , so if i install it i could start learning and applyng without any other programs ! ?
All te best !  ;)

The text from wiki says :
"Installing Free Pascal under Windows
FPC Binaries for Windows"
By far the easiest way to get a working installation of Free Pascal is to download the current binary Windows release of Lazarus from the SourceForge repository [3] - the release contains the current versions of the Free Pascal Compiler and the Free Pascal libraries as well as the Lazarus IDE."

The short answer is yes. In some rare cases you might need external libraries for your application(networking ssh/ssl for example), but it has nothing to do with Lazarus/FPC. You can also install packages(not binaries) to increase the productivity.
