Remote Start Installation

Okay, so I am not a professional at wiring for cars at all and I am still debating on whether or not I am going to try this myself.

I ordered a Crimestopper RS4-G3 from amazon for pretty cheap and I just need some help on how to install this.

First off, I have no idea where the ignition cables are and how to get to them, nor do I know where the lock and unlock cables are for the doors.

Second, I noticed that some people have a pats bypass installed into their car so where would I find one of these and how difficult of an install is that? (I've heard of just taping a transponder to the inside of the steering panel near the receiver, but I don't want to just have the pats on all the time.)

Third, does the 2002 Focus ZTS have a hood switch already inside? I know its crucial to ensure safety because no one wants kids accidentally pressing the remote start when you got your engine all opened up (although the battery should be unplugged whenever your working on your car?). If so, is it normally high, low, or ground.

Finally, I honestly have no idea how or when to use a relay and if I did, I probably would be screwed. (I'm sure I can just youtube it and find it relatively simply)

I couldn't find a full install for remote start on this focus so I decided to post here, if you know a thread that already has my answer, just post it and I'll quiet myself momentarily.
