Profitability on mining depends on your electricity cost. Unless it's very low, you probably can't run a profitable operation (<0.05$USD/kWh).
If you want to start mining, I suggest looking at miners available around you, since a good portions of costs will be shipping and import taxes.
Software is usually integrated with the hardware if it's an ASIC so you don't have to worry about it.

If you are planning to mine bitcoin at this difficulty level you must invest a good amount of money as initial capital,purchasing of hardware is the biggest step,if you are planning to buy new ASIC machines you can check avalonminer and Bitmain as they are manufacturing mining equipments .It all depends upon your budget ,since you are a newbie here you can also take a look at alt coin mining which i think is more convenient if you have a limited budget.
