I am getting an error message ORA-03214' when trying to create
a temporary table space. Is there a set minimum or is is based on database setup?

For me the size of 2m works fines.  is there any reason why you need to create  temp ts of so small size...

SQL> create temporary tablespace temp00 tempfile '/tmp/temp00.001' size 2m;
This worked fine.

Before going on to the size again. Let me ask you this.
If I already have a Tablespace called Temp created when I created the database
would I need to create a new temporary tablespace for the users?

not required.
You can check if this is the default temporary tablespace for users by the following query

 select PROPERTY_NAME,PROPERTY_VALUE from database_properties where PROPERTY_NAME  like '%TEMP%';
