Dhikr with all 99 names and learn about them


Asalamu alaykum wa rahmatuLLAH
1. I want to know where i can learn about the 99 names of ALLAH Aza wa Jal so I can make dhikr with them. A list or something. For example, Ya Rahman for marriage, job and giving away ones daughter for marriage. Etc.
2. And I wanted to ask if this is sufficient so I can do this dhikr or do I then still need to learn more in order to eliminate the dangers of this dhikr (as I got told if I dont know about the names and recite all 99 at once in dhikr that sihr will come down on me or jinn will make niyyah if i dont have one)
uhibbukum fiLLAH wa salam.
