Yes you can test yourself how strong your ability in chess

Firstly e4 or d4, then moves your knights, keep develop your position until you castling, these are very basic. You may learn different openings one by one, take your time.

It is better to learn one!

Almost everyone on Chess.com plays an opening.  The difference is that beginners normally do not play more than 2 or 3 moves of any given opening.  Therefor playing an opening that takes 6 moves to reach the normal position makes no sense at all. 

You can chose to play e4.  Then you need to be ready for e5, d5, and c5.  Anything else is not played often enough at the lower levels.  

As black you will need to have a plan on what to play in response to e4 and d4.  

The biggest reason to play an "opening" is so that you make the same opening moves all of the time, this way. you become familiar with the tactics and possibilities of the positions.  

For example I play e4, and if they play d4 I play the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit as follows

 
There are other 3rd moves for black, but most of the time it is best to play 4.f3.  Since I have played this game up to move 3 or 4 a number of times, I am likely more familiar with the position and more aware what are good moves and what are bad moves going forward.  The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is defined by the second move, at lower levels black almost always takes the pawn. and then defends it when white attacks it with the knight.  The pawns are normally exchanged after which I focus on rapid development which is the theory of all gambits.
