You might want to start with Python. It's powerful and easy to learn.

Programming a FPS is relatively difficult. You'll need to learn quite a bit before getting to the stage where you can do one of those, even if you use a pre-existing 3D engine.

If you want to start with Python, I already gave you link for that, and if you want to start with C++, Microsoft has released Visual C++ .NET 2003 Professional compiler for free as a download (though it lacks the IDE). You can also use MinGW, a gcc port for Windows. For free IDEs you can try Code::Blocks or DevCpp.
