I have a product, in the early stages of putting together a business plan, but I’m an engineer and have a lot of questions, I am not so much looking for answers as I am looking for the resources to answer them

I have a product I make myself, and I have started distributing the product to consumers to get some early feedback and to spread the word about the product. I am really excited about the potential for said product (its a food). I have a logo that I made on one of the those websites that comes up when you google "logo maker". I have a ton of things I want to know. First off what kind of liscensing, approvals, etc are needed for me to sell legally and with less liability. I also have been looking into the whole LLC vs S corp vs this vs that. I was also wondering about taxes and accounting, are these things that at the beginning you have someone maybe less qualified such as a recent college graduate handle and then later on move to using professionals, do you start with professionals right off the bat. For the logo it seemed pretty cheap to buy it off the website, does anyone have any experience with that and if so is it easy or is it better to use something else, and if so what. I'm not so much looking for an answer to these questions but more so who are people I could approach with these types of questions, I feel like the bank is obviously going to be knowledgeable about what type of liability you want to have and what works for your business, but for some of the other items what kinds of people do I need to reach out to. Anything is helpful, and for whoever is going to give me some shit about googling such and such thing I have obviously done that, this is just some auxiliary help. Thank you.

Should I ask for equity and if yes, how much?

I have an interview coming up for a company for an intermediate level position. It seems like there are only around 15 employees so far and they're advertising for 3 more.

I can't see any information about funding on their angel .co page (only that they were founded in 2019) so it isn't clear whether they have received funding, if they're in the process or if it is being built with no external investors.

The job description says no equity & 30-35k for the position I'm applying for. The two other roles (more senior positions) are being offered a salary and .5% – 1.5% equity.

My question is: if it turns out that I'm a good fit, should I ask for equity and how do I/what questions should I ask to determine how much?

note: I'm new to this sub. If I haven't put the correct flair, please let me know

How should I go about getting investment for BTC ATMs? I could find investors but don’t know how much equity in a brand new company I should give up for startup capital?

Currently my idea is to purchase 1 BTC atm and stock it up. I don't need licensing in my country and demand is good while competition is low. But through my crypto connections, I could probably find investors to give me money for 5-10 ATMs upfront.

If it was just me and 1 atm, then I wouldn't even bother registering a company. This is not in the US, but a 3rd world country. But if I wanted to get investment, I'd need to probably form a company and give an equity share. I have no experience running a company whatsoever, my only experience is crypto investing.

How should I go about this? I thought at first maybe 25-50% but then realized many on Reddit say that's insane. I thought about this as multiple people already offered to invest when I mentioned I'd like to buy my own BTC atm, so finding investors wouldn't be the hard part. But unlike many here, it'd be a brand new company. So it would be essentially without a value.
