As a newbie you should be more open to advice, the first being, it is not wise to use an outdated OS. Many improvements and new drivers get incorporporated with newer versions so it is wise to stay current. Also, you should stay current for security reasons.
If I were you as a newbie I would not start with a distribution that is created for professional security use. It is doubtful being new to Linux that you could use the tools included well. I would recommend an entirely different approach if you are new, like trying Linux Mint, for example.

I read that as "if you tell me only what I want to hear I will be nice". Not really an open mid ready to learn new things.
Yes, ultimately I too would go with John VV's advice and download Kali. I also would look into dual boot rather than a VM as both BT and Kali would be more effective tools that way, if you decide to use them.
