Fantastic! It sounds like you probably want a high-tech, medium to high-light, CO2 injected tank. Fast growth, nice carpet of small plants, all that. You'll have to dose fertilizers daily and do weekly water changes. I would research into getting a nice light fixture, a canister filter, a heater, and a pressurized CO2 system. You could also go the DIY CO2 route. There's tons of in-depth posts on here on every aspect of equipment, or just do what I do and find a bunch of tanks you like and see what they're using.
Do a google image search for aquascapes and find out which styles best appeal to you. Then decide if you want to get driftwood, rocks, etc. Whether you like tanks that look natural, wild and jungly, or ones that look manicured like a garden. Or ones that try to emulate a natural landscape in miniature. Figure out which kind of plants you like best (grassy, stems, ferns, etc). That's a good starting point. In medium/high light with injected CO2 you'll be able to grow pretty much anything so you won't need to limit your plant options.
Your tank is vertical AND a corner tank, which is tricky for aquascaping (I have a corner tank myself) but it's also a really cool shape and a fun challenge. You might want to look at pictures of other vertical tanks for inspiration... there's not a ton of them but ones you can look up are Fluval Ebi/Flora. They're much smaller than your tank but there's some really lovely ones out there that use the vertical space nicely with tall plants or vertical driftwood.
