Hi Will, no need to apologise, and welcome to the community. I prefer Linux (generally Ubuntu) to Windows for serving Gibbon. If you want it to be accessible locally, I would load the installer using http://localhost in your browser. It'll then install on this local address and be unusable anywhere else. To secure it, use Ubuntu's inbuilt firewall (ufw) to block access to port 80 (http) and 3306 (mysql). We don't generally provide guides for server setup, as there are many more up to date guides out there...including https://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-install-lamp-on-ubuntu.
I hope this helps get you started : )
