Witchcraft is a form of European Folk Magic. Voodoo is an African - Caribbean mix of traditional African religion and Catholicism, a very unique mix. Witchcraft does have potions, spells, hexs, charms, talismans, and many other forms of magical practices. Each tradition has their own view to these questions. But as far as I see it, one does not have to be born into but can learn it. As to the variety of spells and potions, it is huge and equal to the needs of the practitioner. The rules on what you can and can not do are limited to the practitioner morals and the rules of the tradition if they are in one. As to universal rules, there are a few, the biggest being, be careful what you ask for and accept responsibility for your actions. Where does someone start in this? By seeking, one has started. To learn for free, start in a library and read all you can and start with history.

For beginners, starting with meditation is best. Start with the axiom "Know thyself." There is no real beginner spell. All spells can work and do at times have very unexpected results, some are unpleasant.
Does it work? Yes it does. And yes it doesn't work anything like Hollywood portrays. And no you're not going to learn to levitate over night if ever in this lifetime, if ever in this universe.
Trying to learn more, you're going to have to rely on yourself, not others. You have to learn what is BS and what isn't. No one can tell you. There are only guideposts, no instruction books. Turn over every rock, hunt for knowledge, your thirst will never be sated. This journey will never end. So choose careful.
