I'm a newb as well, but use the information that is already posted. You will see great threads about workout programs etc...
In regards to getting cut, I'm on the same basis as you. I want to build muscle mass and lose bodyfat, but pretty much I heard it falls down as Caloric Intake Vs. Caloric Outtake.

I have kept my body fat down and added lots of muscle, therefore getting that 'cut' look by:
1. Having a naturally fast metabolism.
2. Splitting my meals up into 6-7 smaller meals eaten through out the day every 2-4 hours. This will help you keep your metabolism up and if youre consuming enough calories everyday then you will grow muscle and keep the fat off.

This question comes up here all the time. Unfortunately, for the most part, It's a pipe dream. However, it is possible for some new lifters, and for some more experienced individuals with immaculate diets. Not to mention there's always that genetic freak who can manage it.
For the rest of us there is "bulking with minimum fat gain" and "cutting with minimum muscle loss."
Good things have also been said about Carb Cycling diets, and how gaining muscle and loosing fat can be achieved using them. I've never tried one, but they look pretty cool. Very meticulous though.
As far as a workout program goes, I would assume that heavy lifting would do the best. That is loads that can be lifted for 4-6 reps.
Trust me though, this is the wrong section to be asking this question. This is a question for a nutritionist.

5' 9" + 150. "Cut" doesn't make sense.No brain, no gain.
You can't out-train bad nutrition.
