Bearing on mind that I'm a guy with no experience in using the frameworks or engines mentioned above. I have some ideas for little things I'd like to make but am keeping them for when in actually know what I'm doing

Using some engine built on those frameworks should offer you higher-level services and allow you to get something more "game-like" up and running quicker. If that is your primarily motivation, I would take that approach.

You may use Monogame directly as well, it is actually pretty good on its own.
Just don't call it monogame/xna, there is only Monogame.
