Are you

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone?

Reasoning

0 = I'm nothing
2 = I'm both
3 = I'm like the musketeers
4 = I'm half of Third (Third is I'm quite similar to infinity)
5 = I'm like the Chinese elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water)
7 = I'm lucky
8 = I'm quite similar to infinity
9 = I'm the largest

This gives

9780747532743

Which

when googled gives the title above. as Beastly Gerbil points out, it is the ISBN number

Also

the puzzle title "The Beginning" refers to being the first in the series
