Java, only?

I'm not a programmer and low experience, how long would it take for me to finish it, you think? Any good/fast tutorials?

Yep just Java, depending on your background in coding it might not take too long to make a simple app like a calculator, I tried learning for a few weeks a while back but I have no coding background so struggled trying to learn on my own

There are 200 free android dev video tutorials here you can watch

You need the Android SDK, on that page you have all the details on exactly what you need to install and how. The programming language is Java and if you've never touched a programming language before, the best book I can recommend is Think Java. Your typical online tutorial just tries to get you going as fast as possible but you won't really understand what you're doing, and you'll be relatively helpless when problems arise. Think Java is about acquiring an in-depth understanding of how to write computer programs and troubleshoot them.

You can skip the chapter on graphics though, as you'll not be using the APIs described in the book for Android.

learning java is easy ... and making a basic calculator in android is simple took me half an hour (and thats cause I changed the GUI 3 times) ... as long as you have logic making a basic calculator is very easy and simple once you familiar your self with your environment/tools....
