Request - a simple step-by-step guide how to setup pfSense in Vmware.

I have a HP Mini-server with 2 NICs.

I have VMware and pfSense correctly installed.
I (to the best of my ability) have installed two "vSwitches" for pfSense to use.

What I would really like:
1) An easy guide on how to install pfSense on Vmware.
2) How to make it so all traffic from the WAN goes through pfSense first.
3) All VM's will have pfSense as the filter/router.
4) If possible, have the 2nd NIC on the server route traffic out to my Wifi router.

*Update* I have VMware 5.5 installed successfull and pfSense installed successfully.
I just need someone to help me with the set up of the vSwitches.



Thank you so much,
HappyT
