I am fairly new to photography and only take photos for myself and family and recently got an a77 and am interested in post processing some photos, i am wondering the best software for that purpose balancing ease of use with features...

The best software is the one that does what you want it to do, the way you want to do it. Experiment with a few free trial versions and see what you like.

... also is it best to shoot in JPEG ex fine or RAW + jpeg, or just shoot only raw?

It's best to shoot in the file format that most satisifies you. Try all the options and see what you like.

Not the answers you were expecting, I'm sure... but they are the correct answers.

I'd add that it's important to think on the entire workflow from importing to backing up. The less time you spend "not working" with your photos, the more you'll devote to mastering the software of your choice.
