I would start at the tourist boards for the places you mentioned.
Also, you the search box here at Fodor's and you will find a wealth of info.
When you know what you want to do and see, come back and start asking questions about what you know.
It can be daunting to plan a trip if you haven't done it before but it's also fun.
Search on the Airlines section for info about fares. Try Expedia or Orbitz.com to start with and come back.

Southern Germany is a great place to visit.

Actually, I start at my local library but you can do it all on-line.

I can't believe that no one has yet suggested that you leaf through Bavariaben's posts! He has driven extensively in Southern Germany with excellent trip logs and posts....

You do not want to rent a car in one country and leave it in another unless you are willing to pay the stiff drop-off fee. You may want to take the train from southern Germany to northern Italy, assuming that you want to drive in Italy too.

Hi B,

Driving routes are at www.viamichelin.com and www.mappy.com

If you are just going to visit Rome, you won't want a car in Italy.

Train schedules and tickets are at www.bahn.de.
