I need the step-by-step instruction on how to create a cluster from scratch...

If you have never done a cluster before then I suggest you a hire a consultant to do it for you. Clusters are not simple to setup and I know an Exchange MVP who makes good money from fixing the clusters that other people have setup incorrectly.
It is not simply a matter of inserting the disk and answering a few questions.

Why are you doing an A/P cluster anyway? Most cluster deployments are CCR now.
