Questions about Zorin Before switching

Right know i have been sick of windows, and found ZorinOS through Youtube.

Right now I am running ZorinOS on a VM, Core 16.1 with 4gb, and 20gb in the ubuntu setting. I have some questions,

  1. When i press the start menu key, it opens like the window manager thing, Can i make it open the start menu?

  2. I have heard people in the linux community joke around of actually find drivers for my video card, I am on a ASUS VivoBook with a 500gb SSD, Mobile Ryzen 7 3700U CPU, Raedon Vegas 10 Graphics, Would this work and should I use lite or core?

I am using Vmware workstation 16 without a commercial license.

My computer originally came with windows 10 installed by the way
