A warm welcome to Mac-Forums.

I have selected two links that I believe will get you started. The first is a YouTube video "for total beginners", and the second is textual with illustrations from Apple Support.

May I suggest you give these a good look-over and come back with specific questions.

We are here to help.

how many can fit?
As many as you like.

And how long can movie be?
As long as you want, limited by the capacity of your hard drive.

Is there limitation to number of clips or length of movie?

can I export finished movie to a disc
Not with the latest version of iMovie. You would have to Share/Export it as a movie file and then burn to a dvd.

I want to play Blu ray on Mac, i don;t want to go outside.
Have a read of this MacWorld article. Mac does not support Blu-Ray without a little help from some hardware and software.
