I would suggest that you join a skeet club and get to know some good shooters. There are usually a few good guys at every club that will be glad to help you. Get one gun that fits and that will shoot where you point it. Don't worry about all of the different gauges. Remember, you are learning. When you become fairly proficient with the one gun, then you can move on to other gauges (or barrels, depending on what type of gun you shoot). There are basically 3 styles or techniques used in skeet shooting. These are, sustained lead, swing through, and pull away. I used the swing through method and it worked very well for me. One advantage is that it keeps the gun moving and it becomes difficult to stop the gun. Stopping the gun or slowing down the swing is the number one cause of misses in skeet. That brings me to this: the one problem with my first suggestion about finding some good shooters to help you learn is that they will teach you using their method which may or may not work for you. Just understand that in the beginning. Let me know if you have anymore questions. If you are ever in central Florida, let me know and I will give you some instruction in person.
