Where do I begin researching moving to Europe?

I'm exploring the idea of moving to Europe for a year or two -- preferably to Rome or Paris, and don't know where to start my research. Pretty much all I know right now is that I loved both places when I visited, and I want to give living in one of those cities a try.

I'm at the very beginning stages and am floundering a bit. I don't know whether I want to go there for grad school or try to get a job. Can I do freelance writing work from there without getting a work visa? I don't speak Italian or French -- how much of an issue will that be? Will I be welcomed by the locals? Is it important to join an ex-pat community? I've been told going as a student is the easiest way. Any insight would be appreciated.
