When setting up Remote Access VPN from the PDM should I be setting the VPN connection from the outside interface are the inside interface where the internal network is and with doing that will I have to nat the selected interface with a public Ip on the router

Always apply the crypto map to the client-facing interface (outside)
The VPN wizard should walk you through everything you need to do. When it asks you for an address pool, create a new one using a different IP subnet from the internal network.
