The PMR is a very solid gun to start with, I've never had a major issue with it except for maybe an Oring here or there. They shoot solid and the Hyper2 is a very good regulator, Some complain about the trigger or the back cap but it's just like any other thing use it long enough and you get used to it. The back cap you just have to be gentle with I had my rail for 6 months before stripping out the back cap.
Go to your pro shop and choose a gun that you like, Welcome to the sport!
Edit: I misread the first part of your post like the idiot that I am, But i'll leave the part about woodsball in there.

Alright, first off. this is my opinion but im sure many people will agree here. Woodsball is not even close to similar in how they are both played. i think that a woodsball player that life for that game would probably not be good at speedball just because its not te same environment. moving on now, an offer to join a team (im guessing they are also new players like you) when you are a new player is a good thing this shows that these guys will not judge you based on being a new player, and that is a very good thing, and you will notice that this sport is full of people who think they are at the absolute best and nobody can knock them off their cloud. but let me tell you do not listen to those people who call you a noob or say ohh you suck, or w/e just because your a new player, because those are usually the people that you will be owning in the very near future as you progress through the sport.
i think im gonna make you fall asleep with how much i wrote but just some helpful tips from my previous experiences.

Like people said before me do what you want to do. Have you played woodsball before? Play both a few times and then keep playing the one which you enjoy most.
As for your marker..The Rail is a great marker to begin with. I know because I have one. The only real problem that I had was I rounded out the backcap and had to get a metal one. There are some very minor problems that you might get when you first get it but once you work them out its a fantastic marker.
For example for me it was figuring out why the bolt wasn't cycling the whole way. I found out that in fact you have to screw the tank in another 3/4 turn after you hear the gas enter the gun. Little things like that.
IMO if your looking to get serious about Paintball then I would head towards speedball. It's up to you though.
The crossfire tank is also excellent. What size are you looking at getting? I recomend a 68ci/4500psi.
Also get a good loader; one that can feed at least 15bps. If your looking at viewloader I recommend a Vlocity or Vlocity JR..
But in the end its up to you. Don't let other people to tell you what to play.
