Which .NET Technologies to install? (.NET CORE?)

I have a Windows 10 VDI (in the cloud) and need to install the proper tools to build my hobby .NET program web service. So, please tell me if I should consider .NET CORE and provide any other advice on architecture.

I need to create a back-end web service which calls some outside web services in parallel. One web service call will spawn 3 or 4 outbound web service calls, each with a unique response time.

Also, I need to use an ORM, most likely Entity Framework 6 (or higher). That means I should probably get SQL Express.

So, the tools I see using are:
Visual Studio Community Edition 2019
SQL Server Express 2019
Entity Framework (Core or EF6) ?

What suggestions can you make?

I want the program to be a great learning tool for me. And would learn .NET Core, if there was value to my particular web service demo.

I hope to hear your thoughts.
