Well, I would first recommend that you study C++.

Once you've grasped the concepts and know the more advanced information, I would recommend you have a look at Irrlicht: http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/

Irrlicht is an extremely easy 3D Engine (with primitive collision detection).

For networked synchronizing, I can't really say. There are many great choices.

Just do a bit of researching and you'll find the right network library for you.

Just take it one step at a time and eventually you'll get there.
