I have not ridden the discord myself but have heard very strong reviews on them. I can't speak on M3 bindings but those look ok for entry level and the boots I wouldn't recomend buying without trying them on but even if the boots are a throwaway for you the rest of the package seems like a pretty good deal to me.
Now I would absolutely recomend you rent first before buying anything...
If you are not going to take that advice and buy anyway... in terms of boots they usually run true to size or even a .5 size smaller than your usual sneakers. Snowboard boots especially a pair on the low end like those are going to pack out very, very quickly and get looser on your feet than they'll be the first couple of times you wear them.
The length of the board I would suggest depends on where you're going to be riding. If you're here on the East Coast I'd say the shorter one is better, but if you're on the west you may want to go longer.
Width wise I wouldn't touch anything less that 25.x as you do have a relatively wide foot but not wide enough to warrant a mid or wide board with a width of 26.x for example I wear a size 13 and my Rome has a width of 26.5
