Hi there, you came at the right place.

Your hardware sounds similar to my first computer that I used for modding. Not the best, but it worked. Mafia is pretty old as well luckily.
But one thing you need more than proper hardware or tools is a good set of patience. Set a stretch goal and work to it, and consider every step a learning process by itself. Don't try to learn modding in one day, it will frustrate you so much it affects your motivation. It's very doable, just don't underestimate the time it takes to learn.

Making character models is unfortunately not possible due to its complexity. But you don't want to dive into that right now anyways since character modelling is a trade in and of itself. Learn the modelling basics first.

Best way to start is making texture mods. Download Mafia DataXtractor, unpack the maps folder, and start fooling around with the textures you find inside.
After you've done that you can try importing a very simple static model into Mafia. I've made a guide on how to do that here: http://mafiascene.com/modules.php?name=downloads&cat_id=6&last_id=0

Feel free to ask if you need any answers. Good luck! Thumbs up (left)
