If you're looking to buy a good or even great guitar, I would encourage you to check out pawn- and second hand shops. I recently scored a 12 string Washburn, which after some investigation turned out to be somewhat rare. So, I had a well respected guitar repair fellow fix it up and now it plays and feels f-ing great. And, if my numbers are accurate, it only cost me about a tenth of the actual value of the guitar.

I love F major and Ab major on guitar, they have a really tight tone.

Keep practicing, Big3. You'll get there. I have abnormally tiny hands and I can do it.

I realise my previous post was not that helpful... put your pinky and ring finger on the third fret first, then your middle finger on the second fret, then use your index finger to "bar" every string on the first fret. And push. I do remember when I first started learning guitar many moons ago that it was one of the chords that felt very unnatural, but with time and practise your hand with strengthen and it will begin to feel more natural and easy, as with any chord But this bar chord formation that you initially use for F major is very handy because you can use it to create basically any major chord. Plus lowering the action of your guitar will make it easier for you too and get rid of that unpleasant buzz that you are probably experiencing.
