All purpose flour is fine. 00 is better. Rule #1, don't break your "well". If you do, you will spend an hour cleaning up. But Emeril's got people for that.

Use a recipe from a good source and follow instructions for both the ingredients and method if you are new to making pasta. Different flours produce different pastas and results, so until you have experience, benefit from someone else's expertise. You will learn a lot,

Whole grain flour will require more liquid (eggs/water) than all-purpose or 00. Do you have a particular flour in mind?

Are you in the US? If so, our all-purpose flour has always worked fine for me.
