Personally I don't prefer to maintain my merchant accounts with SSL installaions etc.
At first go with third party processors like paypal, 2checkout etc.
If you really want your own payment gateway integrated these are the steps:
* Develop or buy a cart that allows you to run your own CC transactions. (They will have API interface to easily include payment gateways)
* Install SSL certificate. your host will help with that.
* Sign up for payment gateway like authorizenet.
* Integrate it in to your cart.
