As the title indicated do I want to create 3 graphs with javascript and some graph library - highcharts, chartjs or something else. The data is read from Google spreadsheets.

Do you have any general things to say about it regarding if it will work or not and /or be hard?

I am most concerned about the part where I have read the data and "have it". How do I send it to the javascript? How do I need to package the data?

If you want to display the charts in SVG, then D3.js is a good library to use. If you need VML support, then Raphael.js is your friend. These two libraries are not just for charts though. You would need some intermediate level experience with javascript to get started. D3 is my personal favorite, but that's because it can do so much more than just charts.

I haven't used highcharts, but it looks pretty good from the demo, and "easy" to use. This is SVG. I don't know if they fall back to VML for older IE.

chartjs uses canvas, which personally I don't like. It's pixel based, thus not scalable. It also looks "harder" to get started with.

to answer your questions:

will work or not
it will work if you do it right, and it will not if you don't.

be hard?
That is a very subjective question. What one person considers hard is not the same as another. It may depend on your level of expertise with javascript

How do I need to package the data?
That statement doesn't make much sense in the context of javascript. There is no concept of packaging data in javascript. So I'm not sure what you mean.
