My friend just offered me to buy his GTX 1080 really cheap, but I am unsure about if it will physically fit in my case. I have a Lenovo H520 case, anybody who can help?

The bigger issue will be your Power Supply, which if its a factory one, is 100% inadequate to run a GTX 1080.

Now to answer you question, the easiest way to tell its to get the measurements of the card then measure the space in your case.
Yeah I talked to my neighbour who has a lot of experience with building computers, and he said that my power supply was unable to run a GTX 1080, so my new project is to build a computer which can. My problem now is that I posess no experience and have no idea which CPU, Motherboard, etc. I should be getting.

I didn't include a Case or Operating system. And one issue may be running a Ryzen 3000 on a B450 motherboard due to BIOS incompatibility. There are updates but you need an older Ryzen chip to do it or use https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/pa-100 to get a loaner. You could also save some money and get a Ryzen 2600/2600X which will work no problem, and be about 50 bucks cheaper but not as good for gaming.
