Welcome to the group! You've found the place where the OTHER few hundred
people interested in Roman and other classical cuisines can be found. That
discovery was a huge turning point for me (and I expect for most of us who
can be found here); up to that time, although I'd been interested in the
topic for decades, I was "all alone."
You'll find a lot of knowledge and a lot of inspiration-and hopefully the
answers to at least some of your questions-here, and that is a big help in
getting, and keeping, motivated. But it is true that having a
flesh-and-blood person to bat ideas around, cook, and eat with is another
huge help. Although living out in the sticks of Massachusetts, I was lucky
enough to discover (through this list, of course) that another enthusiast,
Lucia Dentice Clark, lived literally in the next town over. For both of us,
after decades of interest, we now had the chance to sample SOMEONE ELSE's
Roman cooking...which is immensely profitable just on its own merits.
If you mean the Metropolitan NY area, I should hope you're in an excellent
place to find someone to cook with. But, even if you don't, make sure you
ask plenty of questions and show us the results of your efforts.

newbie, so don't want to excite anticipation, but feel that if I had a
partner I'd be more likely to get motivated.
