If you're a complete newbie, like legit never played L2 before, then... Run :D Classic (the version of L2 that we have on this servers) is targeted at seasoned old-schooler who've played L2 in past, it's not really supposed to be enjoyable for a complete newbie. You might try it of course, but it's really not very newbie-friendly. And besides, isn't it more fun if you figure out stuff on your own? :D 

If you're newbie as if "played L2 in past, would like this Classic thing", then:
1) Classes - generally you should play what you enjoy, but if you're not sure and just looking for suggestions, then summoners (especially WK and ES) are great for newbies. Other than that, tyrant is possibly the best PvE/PvP all-arounder right now. Also one thing to know - the dualbox is for PA only (10€ a month); it's not necessary since you level up a lot in RB parties, but don't even bother playing nuker unless you're willing to pay for the PA.
2) PvP, well, what would you like to know? Compared to old chronicles basically everything lands now, WL has long range stun, EE/SE are garbage for healing (bishop has chain heal while EE/SE don't, go figure :D), daggers are kinda garbage, TKs are... Well just like they've always been... Anyway you should check media section for some PvP vidki, there's plenty of footage from mass pvp or oly, might give you more idea how things work here. Anyway you definitely need to wait for high level for PvP, it's almost 5 year old server, don't expect much activity early on.
3) Raids - RB status (whether they're alive or dead) can be seen through map tab, so the RB parties are being formed all the time - you just always have /partymatching window open as you farm and scout for RB parties around your level. Or, if you see an alive RB and no room in partymatching, then form your own ;) 
4) Well, obviously do the early quest; I believe it should guide you as you level up, but just run around your starting village and pick those chain quests. At level 25, do the 'Moon Knight' quest in Gludin, it will give you a free D armor. If you play fighter char, try to get some basic Othell rune (runes alternative to SA from back then) as soon as possible (Othell lv 1 gives you flat +75 crit rate, and you can buy one for like 1kk or less... Extremelly powerful for farming).
5) Other stuff, well... Giran harbor is main marketplace, you can set offline shop with .offline_shop, you can do afk fishing (gives you some exp and some fish that you can either sell or buy buffs with at fish manager), you can easily do the 'Quest Mania' daily achievement by re-taking repeatable quests twice (you know, the "bring as many quest items as possible and I'll give you reward based on how much you bring" kind of stuff (e.g. the Abandoned Camp blue/red/black badge collecting quest)... Just take the quest, say  that you quit, take it again, and say  that you quit again... Boom free 50% xp scroll). Also keep your XP scrolls for raids... Dunno what else :D

Start off in a pvp-oriented server and try all races and classes. Port to all villages and places, walk around the map. Get to know skills, how they work and stuff.

Don't start in a classic server, people will expect you to know how things work, in case you find a group to level up with or raids.
