As long as the simulator is accurate you should be able to get a lot of help. Most of them have video, so it can really help a visual learner. There are some sims that are not very accurate, and will not help as much as being outside and watching real ball flight. 
  No not at all, I'm trying to explain that the only way to know what length you should play is to be fitted properly. If your going to invest in getting clubs you should at least not be ripped off. Just because your 6'2, 6'3 5'5 or whatever does not mean that you would even benefit from longer clubs...maybe you would, maybe you wont. Static measurements are not accurate at all. Your right about not using standard...nobody should.   
  The problem with static fitting a beginner is this......for one the height and arm length is total crap. ( for lack of a better word). Its a way big manufacturers sell the idea of "custom fit". The only way to properly get your lie angle is to dynamically hit off a lie board. You give a player a longer club only if they can hit the sweet spot.     I think that your idea of dynamic fitting and mine are very different. The whole idea of dynamic fitting is to get the...
tweaky is correct     You can not determine your lie angle by looking at where you "think" you are at impact. You also need to find someone who is qualified in being able to actually read the lie correctly. He is also correct on getting the lies checked separately. When your buying a set of clubs from off the Internet, or even from a big box manufactures the shafts are usually all over the place. Even if you do a "custom fitting" with a big box manufacture you do not...
            If you are serious about golfing then you do want to get custom fit. The whole Idea of you not having a repeatable swing is...well wrong...I will explain why.  Most people don't understand what a true lie angle is...a dynamic lie angle....you have to use a lie board. This reading will not change much ( if at all) throughout you golfing career. ( there is a science to reading the proper lie angle, which honestly a lot of people get wrong). A good fitter would...
good advice! Also do it with your eyes shut...you can even go out on the range at practice hitting with your eyes shut...then the only thing you can trust is your balance.
If you are loosing your balance backwards you just figured it out....most people are not in balance, so if you cant stand up at you finish and hold your balance with no weight on your right foot, then thats what you should work on. Just like if you were playing any sport, if your throwing a basketball and falling backwards..the ball could go anywhere, left, right, high. low. Same with golf. What you need to look at is why your doing that? Equipment is made way to strong...
Do you know your ss, and whats your loft on your driver? Slices are very typical for someone who has to low of loft. 
What loft are you playing on your driver, and whats your swing speed? 
Did you get a dynamic lie angle reading when you got fit. Of course there can be a lot of reasons why this is happening, but a lot of people have this problem when their lies are off. Did you swing on a lie board? Also big box manufactures don't have a tight tolerances with equipment, so a lot of times the club is not really what it says it is. (seriously this happens all the time!).  At 0 degree loft lie has no effect, but when you get to your wedges lie has a HUGE...
