I've said this on previous answers and I'm going to say it here: I suggest you get someone who knows what they are doing as this is wayyyy too much for some people on a FaQ site to walk you through.

I was under the impression that a VPS always comes with some sort of OS on it and then you could go from there. Is it not possible to contact the VPS hosting company?

I'd love to set up a VPS from scratch but ultimately if I don't know what I'm doing then I'm going to ask for help. Once you've got the OS and everything installed you'd be better off coming back here and asking (or searching) for how to lockdown a server, best way for upates, naming conventions and such. Good luck.
