Hell yeah. Are you into anime?
Princess Bubblegum is a scientist, which means she could talk to me without either of us losing interest.

Fair enough. Incidentally, it’s #WaifuWednesday.
Mai waifu is Princess Bubblegum. Though a close candidate is Saori Makishima from Oreimo.

Then yeah, I’d start with Ubuntu and work your way up from there.

I suggest you start with a Linux distro like Ubuntu 13.04. You can also go with Linux Mint with Cinnamon if you want a more lightweight distro. There are plenty of others out there, but those are the most user-friendly distros that come to mind.
And why not Mac OS X? It’s expensive but worth it. Is it Apple you don’t like?

And no, unless you buy unlocked (which will cost ~$600), you can’t buy a smartphone sans data plan. Unless you buy a Nexus 4 directly from Google, which will set you back $350. The issue then becomes non-expandable storage due to lack of an SD card. But if you do as I instructed and buy into Google’s Play ecosystem, you won’t need internal storage. You can stream any track you want any time you want using your phone’s data connection. But trust me, you’ll definitely want the data collection.

As for the Linux thing, I wouldn’t recommend it for you. No offense. But I encourage you to try something like Ubuntu in a VM or from a LiveCD/USB.

Dude. I gotta teach you some stuff about proper audio encoding. Lots of complicated stuff involved, but it’s well-worth the effort.
As for music management options, you’ve got WinAMP, iTunes, and Foobar2000. Foobar is mainly for advanced users like myself, as it’s hugely extensible and offers advanced audio encoding along with support for every audio format out there. WinAMP offers similar functionality to iTunes. iTunes is also a good option, as it’s user-friendly and makes managing a huge library simple.
Personally, I use iTunes and Foobar2000. Foobar transcodes lossless files (FLAC, TTA, APE, ALAC, etc) into lossy formats like AAC and MP3. I then use iTunes to tag and manage all the files. iTunes is then synced to my Google Play Music library, where I can stream it to my phone whenever I like. When I’m finished, I can clear the cache on my phone which frees up space for new music. I can also use my All Access feature to have Google automatically create a playlist of songs based on what I like to listen to. If I like I can pin the album to my phone to listen to it offline or just keep it in my library as long as I like without buying it.

Additionally, you’ll have access to Google Play. Google Play is Google’s answer to Apple’s ecosystem. You can buy music, movies, TV shows, apps, games, books, and magazines. When you buy something from Google Play it gets added to your Google account. When you want to access it you can either stream it from anywhere you’re signed in (including desktop computers) or cache it locally for offline access. You can even sync your computer’s music library with your purchases (and free music) with your Google Play Music library. Your existing library can be uploaded to your Google Play Music library.

If you’ve read all this crap, thanks. Free tech support when you get your phone.

You have to either buy the international version or the AT&T variant. Sprint uses WCDMA, EvDO, and WiMAX (LTE soon). Uhm. Sorry, that was unnecessarily long and complicated. Short answer: No.

And yeah, Android devices are unparalleled in terms of media playback. In terms of music, you can buy from any online source that sells files without DRM (read: all of them). Android supports MP3, M4A (AAC), WAV, and OGG (Vorbis) out of the box for audio. You can add support for almost every single codec and wrapper. I added support for FLAC on mine using an app from the Play Store.
In terms of video, it plays h.264 (BP, LP, HP, standard, iPod standard, and many other variants (I won’t go into detail, but you can ask me if you need help encoding videos for your device)), MP4, 3GP, and h.263. You can add support for additional wrappers (MKV, for example).
You can even download an archive of music files, unpack the archive (Androids can unpack almost every compression algorithm out there, including RAR, 7Z, TAR, BZIP, ZIP, etc), add tags, and listen to them without ever touching your desktop.
