I have tried different spells and they haven't worked I've heard a lot about researching magic first, but I don't know where to start and am wondering if anyone could suggest easy spells for after I research about it or if there are any working spells that could be cast without researching that could help educate in magic by practice

Do you know what a spell is? A spell is a ritual attempt to obtain a magical result. In my opinion they very,very rarely work.
However, simple spells,if there is such a thing,start when we are very young. Crossing your fingers for good luck. Pulling a wishbone.
If you have ever blown out the candles on a Birthday Cake, and then made a silent wish. You have cast a spell.

Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.
You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the basics...in which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.
Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.
So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar
