No 32 is 32. The Lashed is kind of equivalent to the Burton Moto, top seller, pretty soft and parky. The TM-Two should be perfect for you. Also don't be scared of getting a pretty stiff boot, as long as its not like a hardboot and you aren't riding all skatey style in the park, the support of a stiff boot really helps you to turn with your legs. There are caveats on either side for a noob, sloppiness of a soft boot can bite you as much as the lack of forgiveness in a hard one, honestly it won't matter what you learn to ride in since you have nothing to compare it to. All that matters is comfort.

If your nearest shops are 40 minutes away and full of dooshbags, I wouldn't feel that much pressure to support them with your boot purchase. Maybe go back to the guy who was cool for bindings and stuff, but you gotta get the right shit for your feet, and when you begin, that process can take a season or 2.

Also Remind insoles unless you already have or plan to afford full customs.
