I would recommend finding a good hearth retailer in your area and work with them to select a stove that is right for your home. They should also be able to arrange for certified installer to handle the installation. Keep in mind many areas require a city or county permit for the installation, and it may be wise to have the chimney and fireplace inspected by a certified chimney sweep beforehand.

This can be completed by various contractors. No special licensesis needed. You can look under HVAC contractor, general contractor or handymanservices. I would just make the recommendation that you have your contractor ofchoice pull a permit. This will insure that the township will give their sealof approval before the job is completed. This could make the big difference inprotecting yourself and your family. It's never a 100% guarantee but yourcontractor is more likely not to take short cuts if someone is looking over hisshoulder.
