Please learn the nitya devatArchana vidhi from some able priests.  It is believed in some saMpradAya one should get Shivalingam through charity only and it should not be cash purchased.  But IMO if you have the 'will' to start the shivArAdhana immediately, kindly don’t waste time to wait for the charity.  Buy it, purify it with pancha gavya and with other vedic procedure (pratima shuddhi), take it from the hands of your guru or through some elderly anushtAnavanta brAhmaNa.  'panchaayatana pooja' depends on your kula / ArAdhya daiva.  If your ishta daiva is shiva then you have to follow the procedure of 'shiva panchaayatana', if vishNu,  'vishNu panchaayatana, likewise vinaayaka, sUrya or devi.  For shiva panchaayatana Pooja paddhati you can refer the book suggested by Sri Venkatesh Murthy prabhuji.

Thanks for the valuable suggestion Bhaskar. This in fact, never crossed my mind. But I don't have a shiva linga at my home. Is it okay to buy it or should some one give it to me as a gift?  ‎Are there any other mandatory rituals associated with keeping the linga at home? ‎ ‎Regards ‎ Kripa ‎ ‎ yo vedAdau svaraH prokto vedAnte cha pratiShThitaH | tasya prakRRiti-lInasya yaH parassa maheshvaraH ||

IMHO, chanting mantra with bhagavat kainkarya will be more efficacious than mere chanting the mantra without following the Pooja vidhAna physically. Since you know rudraM chamakaM etc. it would be better if you chant those mantra-s while doing the abhishekaM to shivalingaM likewise if you know the purusha sUktaM, shree sUktaM etc. chant those mantra-s while offering the shOdasha upachAra Pooja to your ishta devata. So that archana, ArAdhana, upAsana will be complete in all respects i.e. kAya, vAcha and manasa. If you are already doing this, kindly ignore this message.

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
