Advice architecture - solution setup home/small business server



Just build my server and currently learning Linux Red Hat.
Motherboard: Supermicro X10DRi-T Server Motherboard - Intel C612 Chipset - Socket R3 (LGA2011-3) - 1 x Bulk Pack
2x CPU: Intel CM8064401831000 Xeon E5-2630 v3 Eight-Core Haswell Processor 2.4 GHz 8.0GT/s 20MB LGA 2011-v3 CPU
2x Samsung M393A4K40BB1-CRC 32GB DDR4-2400 LP ECC Reg Server Memory
For OS (Samsung PM883 Series 240GB 2.5in V4 TLC V-NAND Enterprise SSD, SATA 6Gb/s, 550MB/s read 320MB/s write, 1.3 DWPD, Power Loss Data Protection, 3 Years Warranty, 7mm, OEM (No retail box))
2x Seagate 3.5" 2TB Enterprise Capacity (Exos) SATA 6Gb/s, 7.2K RPM, 128M, 512e/4kN -- mirror

I'm trying to achieve the following and need some advise on tech to use and paths to take to achieve it:
0. Overall security is key (ok to go overboard - it is a learning exercise propably over a few years)
1. NAS/SAN for home use: zero trust - Authentication required in LAN network / encryption on disk / connection to different OS required
2. one VM for on prem bitdefender elite
3. 2xvirtualised pc's windows (game & ML application)
4. media server
5. maybe authentication server? TBC

What I'm trying to understand is:
1. architecture (how many VM, which techn, ...)
2. what technologies to use (e.g. for filesystem ?ZFS?, for authentication, ...)

Just need to get my head around optimal way to set this up and what technologies to use to start learning bit by bit.
