As far as the fleshing knife you are going to get alot of opinions. The easiest to learn to use, would be one that only has a pushing side on the knife. The problem you will get in to, is several animals have a fair amount of gristle on them, and just a pushing knife won't get the job done.

i would recommend the necker knife and as far as a board goes it doesnt matter if its wood or some other material just make sure it fits the knife
