Post Please guide on Screen Printing

Hey Pros. Hope all of you are doing well

I'm a newbie in T-shirt printing industry and got stuck as I have taken orders from market as I was pretty much confident that it's easy but here in India everyone says different thing..which leads to confusion and hence wasting time

Hope your community can please help me

Budget - $500

Requirement - Printing White Color on Black Color Cotton Tshirt

So far I had figured about

1. Heat Press Machine ( Already Bought )
2. Screen Printing Frames
3. Mesh sheets used for frames ( Confused about this, exactly what it does ? )
4. Printing Design on Butter Paper ( but don't know how to transfer it to a screen printing Frame)
5. Tshirt Holder + Frame Holder ( I could easily hire someone to make me one )
6. Halogen Lights for curing the design and after that use heat press to final cure the design

Question 1 - Steps for Making screen printing frames ?
What euipments I need or chemicals i need to buy ?

also I have heard about some positives and butter paper

please do guide me, what would be the easiest way for making a frame ?

Question 2 - White Color Ink - I have tried many screen printers in my location but problem with them ...they are not getting me the quality eg. Creamy white color ..they are unable to print

some peoples are saying it's cold printing than only you can get creamy white color and some says it's hot printing only ?

Question 3 - Do I need any chemical or what are the exact steps on printing on tshirts ?

I know, it's not a proper way for doing screen printing as i need a proper screen printing machine for that worth $2000 or something but currently I have $500 budget only or max it could be $700

and I only need to print one color on Tshirt i.e White
