Cross COuntry Newbie

I have cross-country skied at Kings Canyon National Park 30 years ago and again a decade ago at Frisco Nordic Center. While swooshing along on the two tracks, someone whizzed by on the groomed trail, which looked like it would be much more fun. I stepped onto that trail and could not emulate what I found later to be referred to as skate-skiing. Later, when I returned my skis, I was told that I needed special skis.
Recently, I pulled skis out of a dumpster and one of the bindings was broken. I did some research and found the 3-pin to be an outdated style but I found a replacement pair on Ebay for $4 so I clicked Buy Now.
As much as I would like to try again to skate-ski (nordic?), Frisco is over a two hour drive. I should finally make the drive this season, rent and see if I how I like it. I have read that it is strenuous.

What style of used bindings and boots shall I purchase to use with my "new" skis? Folks here in Northern Colorado tend to use the local golf course after a snow. The Poudre Canyon is also a short drive.

I do not have the URL's of the photos that I would like to upload.
