You need a type 1 Federal Firearms License to deal in firearms.

Application to own and sell firearms?

Under US law, 2 separate matters. MOST states do not require a license to own a firearm- if your state DOES require a license, you need to check with your state. SALE of firearms is regulated by the Federal Government thru the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. To engage in the business of selling firearms, you would need to be licensed as a dealer. You may obtain an application from the BATFE. In addition, you will need to meet any state or local laws, such as zoning for the location of the business, a business license, sales tax, etc.

First, you obtain a Type 7 or Type 10 Federal Firearms License and a Class 2 Special Occupational Tax stamp, at which point you'll be properly licenced to manufacture a suppressor.

Are websites that sell and send firearms to your address legitimate?

First, in the US, sale of modern firearms is regulated by Federal law- Title 18, US Code, Section 922. That law requires that when the ownership of a firearm is transferred across a state line (inheritance excepted) it must pass through the holder of a Federal Firearms License (such as a licensed dealer or collector) in your home state. Sites such as gunbroker, auctionarms, and gunsamerica are the largest internet gun sale sites in the US. They are legitimate, and they spell out the process I described in their website instructions. A firearm purchased there will NOT be shipped directly to your home, unless you have a Federal Firearms License. (PS- I do, and just bought a Mossberg 151K about 2 minutes ago. It will be shipped to me.)

You would also be limited to automatic firearms manufactured and NFA tax stamped prior to the passage of the 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act (or, for a fully imported automatic weapon, it would have to be manufactured, imported, and NFA tax stamped prior to the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968).
