novice sonos user in new house needs advice for setup

Hi there, I moved into a house with two rooms with ceiling speakers and a set of outdoor speakers.  room 1 with ceiling speakers is meant to run off the amp as rears in a surround setup, the other ceiling speakers room 2 and outdoor speakers Room 3 have separate volume control.  I have a samsung tv and soundbar For the home theatre portion of rom 1 and it is fine for music so I don’t really need the ceiling speakers in room 1 to be live.  Room 2 and room 3 are wired to the same corner where the amp for room 1 would be.  I had given up on it two years ago as I was told there is no easy to run setup from a smartphone to Bluetooth stream music from a phone to an amp and to three separate Zones.  Now I realize I only need two zones and I was told Sonos has some easy to run options for this. What do I need to buy? Is there one Sonos amp that could run both zones ( 4 speakers) and allow me to stream music from my phone, change zones etc… all from my phone? I don’t need to have different music on both zones or even music on both at the same time if it is a big deal. Many thanks!!!
