What you need is experience with lua scripting and game development.

Rpg's are complicated, You might want to look into making something simpler just to get your feet wet. A good start is a pong clone or a snake clone. You can also follow some of the tutorials on the wiki.

Should you not have all your characters on one sheet anyway (Sprite sheet)?

I watched this tutorials and they seem like a great place to start, but maybe you should read or watch some turtorials on Lua first.

The wiki suggests Programming in Lua and the Lua Reference Manual. PIL is relatively beginner-friendly (although it helps a lot if you already know how to program in another language), but the reference manual gets quite technical and in depth about areas you probably don't care about (like the C API). Those two books are how I learned Lua, but if you find a video series or whatever that works for you, then go with that.
