it would burn wood and I would want a mantle, and I would want to be able to put a wood stove insert in it so it would still burn wood, have the option to use it if I cant find an insert that fits, and if I can, find one that I can cook on(I heard there was one called a ben franklin stove insert)

You're going at this bass ackwards. Look at the various types available and then look at the directions to install them.
They will include all the information needed.
There is no information for, "I want a fireplace, how can I frame it out".
