I'm getting closer for a trip to the Nether. I have 10 blocks, but how much do I need? I'm gonna go after the glowstone. Need it for my lamp posts.

You need 10 for the "Economy" version (No corners.) and 13-14 for the "Full" nether portal (With Corners.) It makes no difference if you add corners or not, it's only aesthetic.

Obsidian and some way of igniting it, yes.

you only need 10:
place them like so with dirt or something for the corners.

Then just light up the top of the bottom two obsidian with a "flint and steel" which is made from one iron plus one flint.

Yup, then you light one of the bottom two blocks with flint and steel to activate it.

You'll also need a flint&steel to light the blocks for the portal itself. The obsidian part is usually referred to as the "Portal Frame"
